Carsten -- Yes, it is nice to code having a design spec that is already
fleshed out and time-tested in the real world.  I know there's a huge
amount of time, effort, and careful decision making that's gone into
the design of Org-mode.  It feels good to be able to piggy-
back off of it.

I just wish I knew Emacs and elisp a little better
so I could see how certain functions were implemented in it.  Some
things seem obvious; I expect I'm doing them very similarly in Vim
to the way they were done in Org-mode.  Other things, not so much.
