I agree, we should not do that.  Are we doing that?  My intention has
always been to recommend


as the place to start.

I'm beginning to realize it doesn't matter.  Once Emacs switches, we'll
see what people really need, and then we'll provide it.  So I'm not
going to worry about it.  We'll switch, and there will be grumbling, and
then it will be fine.  IMHO, we already have prepared all the
documentation we can in advance.
