Looking at the amount of currently maintained elisp packages online
these days, I suspect Emacs actually has more users than ever, it is
just that our segment of the overall market is smaller.

And yet, the number of core contributors stays where it was, at best.

Let's say tomorrow Emacs is like VS Code running Emacs Lisp in a Guile
VM. Is the idea that if we compete in the same modes as the modernist
editors, we can steal enough people from them that we will advance the
cause of free software?

Sure. But also how about just "help more people enjoy Emacs's power and flexibility"?

We don't really have to compete for the _exact_ same audience. But we can expand ours.
