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 :).
