No it isn't. I made absolutely zero inference on the great things Eli
has done in the past. In *this* instance it strikes me that the old

it's just the way it comes across.

If it seemed I was in anyway degrading or disputing Eli's efforts for
Emacs then I sincerely apologise. That was not my intention.
