In the first place, you're right, sort of.  It's hard to imagine the
market for emacs programming is nonzero.  Which emacs user isn't
already a programmer, and is inclined to spend money to have it
configured to his liking?  

In the second place, $600/hr is pure fantasy.  I'm sure he gets it,
except that billed hours to date are zero.  

Specialized consultant programmers in New York City sometimes pull down
$200/hr or so, on projects worth millions.  Usually $150/hr is a
stretch.  $600 is just comical.
