Sorry for starting this, this is exactly the kind of discussions I try
to avoid at any price because at the end there are a lot of emails that
finally solve nothing because there is never an agreement.

I just mentioned AN EXAMPLE. So please, as none of these issues will be
solved, just try to forget this threads (which started as a question
about using a common lisp interpreter to improve performance) and
continue working with emacs as you do normally.

Else just think what a new user would like to see in a editor (or what
they don't find in emacs) and just make a list (please open mind). And
publish that somewhere that people can vote for them.

We have this discussions so often because we only get the developer's and
old users opinion. But not a general public survey to measure global
opinions.

Anyway, you seem to be agreeing with me, but this discussion started
from Ergus giving an example of one such inconsistency. And I have yet
to see you state a solid opinion about it in particular.

A single example doesn't yet make a point.  To prove we have a
problem, much more than one example will be needed.

As for my opinion on this, I make a point of not posting "me too"
responses, if I don't have something more intelligent to add to the
discussion.  Especially a discussion as long as this one.
