I'm not sure why you'd want different Emacs configuration just for that 
one task (couldn't you just put that buffer in an appropriate major 
mode?), but to each his own. 

But you still haven't answered: why should editing the cask files in a 
new Emacs instance require replacing the original Emacs instance, 
instead of running both of them concurrently? This "exec" operation will 
need to perform all the actions done during kill-emacs, like asking 
about saving modified buffers, killing running processes, etc.
