Hi Eric, 

all three libraries should be available via MELPA now, navi-mode and outorg too:



let me know if you have difficulties getting them there. If you use Git,
you could of course clone (or fork) the github repos I linked to in my
other mail, e.g.:

| $ git clone address@hidden:tj64/navi.git


Sorry, I announced the link but forgot to post it. There are other
related screencasts in the emacsstuff video channel demonstrating the
use of the libraries with PicoLisp (and Org-mode itself). This one shows
their use with Emacs Lisp source files:

I needed just a little trick to make outorg work with message mode, and
now I can write arbitrarily complex emails in full Org-mode for the
price of doing M-# M-# (M-x outorg-edit-as-org) once to fire up the
*outorg-edit-buffer*, and then M-# (M-x outorg-copy-edits-and-exit) to
convert the modified content back to its original format. Its really
handy to be able to write _and_ evaluate code examples directly in the
buffer you are writing your email in ...
