This one is nice, thank you!

Yes, I guessed that (but the keybindings on Info are so quick that
for us keyboard junkies, a quick thrice-u does it).

I was rather trying to understand and interpret Emanuel's unease,
and to think more philosophically about the Emacs whereabouts.

And yes, in some ways, Emacs and the landscape around is sometimes
lacking in discoverability. This is somewhat of a paradox, since
Emacs is at the same time the most discoverable software I know
of (and has ever been), but there you go.

To be fair, it has done impressive strides the last ~10 years in
this department.
