@cwebber Probably useful for the Guile Emacs effort, as that lists startup compile time as one of the issues needing improvement:

Emacs? Wasn't it the OS that lacks a good editor?
@cwebber

@wauz @mathew It's the OS that has the best editor, because the editor is a quasi-lisp-machine-OS... which is the right decision :)

Its main contender, vi, was dying until it "became an emacs" through vim, as @antifuchs once said to me. (Back in the day, when "OS that lacks a good editor" was most common, one of the most prominent arguments *for* Vi over emacs was that it wasn't extensible; shouldn't the unix philosophy be enough??!?!?!)

@dpwiz
ACK. For some reasons, I think, new jokes are an acceptable use of Hirnschmalz
