Indeed, though I think there's not much chance of old-timers' interests
being ignored on _this_ list... :-)

BTW, since you mentioned Eclipse, I should note that Eclipse has a
fairly decent "Emacs keybindings" mode:  Though it's only a shallow
emulation layer, it seems a lot more complete than is typical for such
add-on keybinding sets (Emacs' somewhat complex and multi-level bindings
seem beyond the capability of many programs).  This mode was a godsend
when I recently had to do a lot of hacking in Eclipse!

Eclipse makes Emacs look positively light-weight and svelte though... :-}
