Emacs is the most extensible and the most community-extended software
created ever. This thread is about *defaults*, because defaults drive
user habits, because defaults are why most people stick to a software
or give up in the first few days, because defaults are the reflect of
an evolving mindset amongst core developers.

There is absolutly no problem to extend emacs and to customize it for
your needs. It is great for that already.
