That's excellent news.

On a technical note, I think it makes more sense to associate embedded
applications with Emacs windows, rather than buffers as you're
apparently trying to do.  Otherwise, we run into the problem of handling
the situation where the same buffer is displayed in more than one
window.  Basically, we should have a way to say "the contents of this
window are handled by an embedded program, rather than by Emacs".  WDYT?
