It does, even if it not my prefered way.  Thank you very much for your
effert to help.  It means a lot to me.  It also means a lot to me that
you want to help the end users control their computers by allowing them
to see more of how Emacs works (instead of hidding it).  Thank you very
much and congratulations.  I will try to learn eev your way before
trying to do it mine.  :-)
