I say, "...there are just over 1450 columns."

I say, "It only implements a subset of the features of GNU Emacs, but
in return it's quite efficient and fast."  In retrospect I do wish I
had been clearer and elaborated on the "contrived" part of the test.

Again, the goal was to promote discussion, and in the end, hopefully
improve Emacs.  I will take the video down at some point.  I also
don't want to give new users the wrong impression.
