Has Emacs been more stringent in the older days?

I can't estimate.  I think most people only use a subset of the
features/commands (or even of the meanings of the prefix arg).  Anybody
can pick what he thinks fits his working style.  Dunno if that's
optimal.

I don't think Emacs has changed to the worse in the last years.  Of
course, breakage of working configurations, or a changed behavior with a
constant configuration, is always annoying.  Some changes led to
confusion (e.g. advice.el -> nadvice.el, or the changes in the copy and
yank behavior).

But under the line, I liked every new version of Emacs more than the
version before.


Regards,

Michael.
