    Emacs _is_ one of the old great ones.  You are trying to make Gandalf
    more popular by plucking his nose hairs.

It's not a good analogy.  People can like Gandalf as a character
without having to learn lots of incantations.

Learning Emacs is never going to be easy.  But we might be able
to change Emacs so that learning it is a little less hard,
and that would be a substantial improvement.
