Really? When did that happen?

(And if it's now graphical, can you really still call it "Emacs"? I 
mean, if you write a GUI application that does what sed does, would it 
still be "sed"?)

Yeah, pitty that... (Again, I was going to try compiling HEAD to play 
with this - and then I realised you need Linux to do it, so I haven't 
got round to it yet.)

Well, part 1 would be being *graphical*. I really have no time for ugly 
cryptic ASCII art "graphical" UIs... I just like being able to *see* 
what's happening. Is that too much to ask?
