I am trying to test the demo, but it asks me about Emacs C sources? Does it mean
I have to download source code to check this demo out?

I also get error if window is too small:

Debugger entered--Lisp error: (error "Window #<window 7 on quick-edit-demo.el> too small for splitting")
  signal(error ("Window #<window 7 on quick-edit-demo.el> too small for splitting"))
  error("Window %s too small for splitting" #<window 7 on quick-edit-demo.el>)

Would be cool to test it :).
