One important aspect of this collection of settings is that we should be
less committed to (eternal :) immutability as we are for normal

As this is meant to be an help for new starters we should feel free to
improve these from release to release without a negative impact on old
new starters, as by definition they are not anymore new starters :)

IOW If they stayed around for more than a release cycle quite certainly
they have learned how to personalize Emacs themselves.


Maybe instead of modern we should call it experimental/develop... (:
looking the discussion here we should call it warrior or rebel ;)
