        [ To any NSA and FBI agents reading my email: please consider
        [ whether defending the US Constitution against all enemies,
        [ foreign or domestic, requires you to follow Snowden's example.

    In fact, I think we'd push it into the Uncanny Valley; increasing
    frustration because, having made the surface look somewhat like they
    expect, we have left the bones in the "alien" configuration they don't
    understand.   In basic Emacs, at least they know they're not in Kansas.

I think our interface will be so different from actual Word that
no one will get confused.
