Hey Marko,

Oh yes, I tried it, and it looks rather cool. The problem is, however, that I
work quite often from a remote machine, via ssh, and without X. So I believe
that in my case it is a good idea to develop habits for using Emacs without
the gui, from ground up.

Emacs has a solution for everything! Try the amazing tramp package to
edit remote files (although I am not sure whether auctex is "tramp
aware"). `C-h i m TRAMP RET' That said, as far as I know reftex-mode
works just fine on a terminal. You will only miss out on the latex
previews in auctex.

That's one solution to working on a remote machine and yet have the power of emacs with X.

A bit off topic for an emacs group, but I typically connect to a remote machine with VNC, which gives the full power of a windowing system, including emacs. The performance is quite good, even through a VPN.
