That's very common and it is one of the best
things with Emacs.

I think the young programmers in their early
teens that discover Lisp are
virtually nonexistent.

At the universities they sometimes teach just
a bit of Lisp together with Haskell and perhaps
SML or Erlang as part of a course in
"functional programming". That can very well be
done but probably it will focus too much on the
functional aspects to give a fair view of Lisp,
with which you can program in any style
or paradigm.
