What irks me most in such cases is not the idea itself, or the wish
to discuss it. It's rather that those people consistently seem to
want others to do the grunt work. Usually they seem to shy away from
looking at former attempts and trying to learn something from them.

Now this would be an interesting contribution: what's wrong with
Climacs? What's right? What went wrong with PortableHemlock and
what can we learn from it?

Heck, they even seem too lazy to take the discussion to emacs-tangents.

Huffing and puffing about freedom of expression is a bit...
strange in this context. But seems to be fashionable these days.
