I was rebutting the phrase "suggested anything like that" above.  I
did not imply that RMS had directed a conclusion, but your original
claim is a very strong one.  If you had said "No one has suggested

But it seemed to me RMS was suggesting a broader principle of not
allowing external projects to dictate decisions in GNU projects, so
I'm not really clear that he wasn't speaking for GNU Emacs as part of
