Thanks for showing us that.

I see the logic of this -- but I think that trying to do this with
Emacs would be a more drastic UI change than the one Blender made,
because the keyboard is the principal interface rather than a
secondary one.

At the same time I don't think we could get a lot of boost in usags
from it.  Blender was the only libre video editing program competing
with proprietary programs which, as a side issue, very expensive too.
By contrast, there are already other libre text editors.
