Forbidden?  I'd rather say "inappropriate".  However, Carbon Emacs is
just as free as X11 Emacs, and it would be stupid not to be able to
talk about it on this group.  This does not constitute a
recommendation for nonfree software in any way that I can see.  Sure,
Carbon itself is nonfree, but we are not promoting it merely by
talking about Carbon Emacs, are we?
