Sounds like you think that the notorious newbies we've been arguing about

because it does not adhere to CUA by default - those who would save Emacs from

Viper will save Emacs by expropriating vim?  Surely this is not about a crusade
for Emacs to finally conquer vi by adopting CUA by default, is it?  ;-)  Instead
of The End Of Emacs, we would announce The End Of The Editor Wars?  My, we are
