Yes! not today, not this year, but may be in 4 years to come.
Smart kids who understands only Hebrew, are less likely to overcome
the learning curve of Emacs than kids who reads English fluently.

If we had more 12-year old kids using Emacs Today for trivial tasks, 
we will have some of them doing sophisticated programming in 4 years.
If they grow with Emacs and love it - they will want to contribute back.

How many years are we waiting for Bidi support in Emacs?
