I think we should aim for _not_ changing the concept of an editing
session lightly.  This is the _last_ thing we should resort to, when
simpler solutions don't cut it.  And part of the reason is that we
can't really pull the personality of a single Emacs apart
consistently: Elisp does not really offer that degree of separation.

And "behaves almost as if...,spare us the details" is not something I
want to write down in a manual.
