2, just 2 lines make pico so attractive to beginners.. Those are the 2
help-lines at the bottom of screen..     And those beginners go on to
become experts, sometimes using vi..     

Wouldn't it be cool if we had the same 2 lines for emacs-novices, say
as follows:

(defvar novice-user t)

(if novice-user
      (resize-minibuffer-mode 1)
      (run-with-idle-timer 3 t

(defun novice-user-display-message ()
"C-v(Ctrl-v) ==> PgDn; M-v(ESC-v)==>PgUp ; C-x C-c==> Quit;C-h==> help;  
C-x o==> other-window; C-x k ==>kill-window;
C-x C-f ==> find-file; C-x C-s ==> write-files; C-g    ==> break ")
