You tried to explain it better, but think the wording in the manual
described things better.  Nothing wrong about that.  Thank you for
trying to clarify things.  Also, there is nothing wrong with giving
up.  I was just saying how it was for me, that's all.

As more people get to use emacs, what was adequate before, becomes
inadequate.  Many things will change and people would want to use it
in different ways and at different levels of sophistication.  A
possibility could be not about writing more, but organise better.

After all we want that others are pleased with our work.
