I was not intending to offend anyone. I literally meant that emacs is an editor among many.
Would it also be a reasonable request then to add in vim markers for custom folding or indentation/formatting directives?

Also, the space between form feeds sometimes goes well beyond a typical terminal screen. For instance in variable.c, there is one at line 178 and the next is on line 301 and then at 448. Those are probably not particularly useful for anyone (correct me if I'm wrong).

I suppose the alternative to removing them is instead to add more of them to properly segment the files for logical viewing.

With all due respect, Emacs is not just "one editor".

I second the request to not delete these page markers.
