Could we kill this emacs thread?  Just because you dislike emacs doesn't mean
that Richards decisions was/are wrong.  Even if they were wrong then (note
the 'if', I don't have any reason to believe they were), it has absolutely
nothing to do with the subject at hand which is if Richard is to serve on the
board of the GNOME foundation.

I'm not supporting RMS for the board, but not because he likes emacs.  While
some may think that having worked on emacs is a crime punishable by death, I
don't think it should disqualify people from the board.

The whole editor flame war is so .... old.  And as we all know vim is the
best editor so there's no point in arguing :)
