No, I didn't imply that. Monospace may be better for the younger folk too. Or, maybe it isn't. They will have to try out for themselves and figure out which works better. I am afraid I don't have a theory of monospace. You are probably looking for one ;-)

On the other hand, the notion that proportional fonts are easier to read will have plenty of takers. So, everything Emacs can do to support proportional fonts will be very welcome.
