I haven't the bandwidth to respond to all the comments, and don't want to waste 
yours either, but thanks to all for the valuable advice.

Just to clarify, I'm not planning on doing all my learning by just exploring my 
list of functions etc. I'm looking at the A-B diff's more so than the whole 
collection, the idea is to be able to see in one place what **changes** these 
"better default" packages make to the vanilla settings, and to enable me to 
systematically compare them to each other. 

"Test-driving" them and trying to understand their source code are of course 
also part of the process.

My goal isn't to flatten the "usage" learning curve, but to help me climb the 
"customizing" one faster - and the process of putting code together and diving 
into emacs' internals is all part of that. I also didn't mean to put so much 
focus on the keybindings issue, just that's why I'm holding off on the hands-on 
usage for the moment until I've got a good set in mind, checking out the 
various key popular packages bundled in these "out of the box" starter kits is 
also part of the project.
