:-) :-) Hahaa! LOL! I was thinking exactly those words earlier this
morning, while trying to debug a complicated "cond" statement that tries
to figure out on which computer the Emacs is being starting, and which
windowing system is being used on it.

But I've stopped trying to maintain my PS:<LIMAN>EMACS.INIT. (Is anyone
else that old? :-) My TECO is getting rusty ... ;-)

I have some files in CVS (yes, I'm that old ;-), but yes, Git is on my
mind too. Every new thing I archive I put in Git.

But, this looked interesting ...

Can you expand on how using Org for this is done? Examples?
