Yeah, right. It seems only logging, debugging and buffers with nothing
interesting for users start with a space. So maybe we should change

It's a combination of the first two. In Emacs 22 you start and end a
macro with F3.

Yes, that's fine for me, too. But I'd let him select a file or a
directory and then use the appropriate function.

When  I released GNU  Emacs and  people started  using it,  they started
sending me improvements in the mail. So I would get a message with a bug
fix, and a message with a  new feature, and another bug fix, and another
new feature, and another... and another... until they were pouring in on
me so  fast that just  taking advantage of  all of the help  people were
giving me was a big job. Microsoft doesn't have this problem. (RMS)
