Fine. In that case Emacs can not become a word processor. Or maybe it
already is: the first "word processor" which supports only the file
formats text/plain and text/enriched.

That means I can stop thinking about implementing word processor
functionality for Emacs right now and go back to use it just as a
programmer's editor.  It is not the application then, that I thought
it would become.

Sorry, for having been a nuisance, then.
