It's fine for entering and editing text.  But then it's running in a
PDP-10 emulator which is probably faster than the original hardware.

I don't think there was a TECO package for sending email in 1976. :-)
Recall that EMACS just got started earlier that year.

I just got this running, so I haven't made any proper documentation yet.
Some details are in a GitHub issue, and the files will be in my Emacs
history repository.
