Hi Rubikitch! Long time no see you!

Your code is awesome! I have tested it, changed the paths a little bit
to make it run on my Debian system, and included it in eev, in the
file examples/ruby.e...

I would like to migrate `eeruby' to one of the main .el files in eev -
eev-langs.el - but that file is going to become part of GNU Emacs in a
near future, and authors of code in GNU Emacs are expected to fill out
a bit of paperwork with the FSF... we keep the authorship but we
transfer the copyright to the FSF so that they can defend the code in
court against GPL violations. Would you be willing to do that?

I like how you used "^Q" and "^P" as anchor delimiters instead of "«"
and "»". That's a much saner choice than "«" and "»", as ^Q and ^P
will work in buffers using any encoding... and I guess that
raw-text/unibyte buffers are inconvenient for you because it's
impossible to enter japanese text in them...

I'd like to have a better support for non-raw-text/multibyte buffers
in eev... May I ask you how you defined the glyphs for ^Q and ^P in
your setting, and which other changes you did on the glyphs support?
Do you use eev-compose at all? Have you "fixed" it? Thanks in advance,


P.S.: I never integrated properly into eev the code that you
contributed in mid-2003 - it was in the rubikitch/ directory in
eev-0.94.0.tar.gz and eev-0.94.1.tar.gz, but I left it out of 0.95.0
due to copyright paranoias and because I was rewriting everything in a
minimalistic way... but my plan now is to add a stub to `to' so that
people can implement their own experimental `push current position's
and `back's without the need to redefine any of the functions in
eev... More on that later, *.
