That's the sort of situation I solve with `emacs -Q`. Sure, it's annoying that
my custom key bindings aren't available, but it's rare enough not to be a real

So, if you have an itch, scratch it! ;-)

Personally, I'm happy with the facilities Emacs already provides (with el-spice,
eldoc and eldoc-box) that I don't really feel the need to use LSP. I do use

if there were an LSP server for it, but I can't say I really miss it.
