I would like to have the GDS elisp code, running in Guile, displaying
debugging information in Gtk (or Qt, or X) windows, without a full
Emacs present.

- I think it would be a cool hack.
- For small environments like the Nokia tablets and Openmoko, where it
might be tricky to have a full Emacs.

Will it actually ever happen and work?  I'm afraid I don't know.

FWIW, I don't have a strong view on this.  I'm happy with anything
that FSF are happy with, and that makes the job of updating the
copyrights easy.
