This underscores my point: clojure-mode is an important feature, so
Emacs should provide it.  It should be a full-fledged part of Emacs,
documented in Emacs.  To leave these jobs to nonrecommended add-ons,
such as found in NonGNU-ELPA, is not doing a good job.

We hope that Emacs users who write extensions will appreciate Emacs
enough to contribute them to Emacs.  Usually they do.  When they
don't, that's unfortunate -- but we can make up for it.  It isn't an
lot of work compared with all the work we do on Emacs in a year.
