Hmmm, maybe I shouldn't have cut quite so much.  This almost looks like
a humorous comment on the subject line...

Anyway - the thing that may get me to invest enough time to get to know
emacs well is Bicycle Repairman.  I can't really imagine how one would
work such that fixing indentation was remotely so large a part of the
daily grind as to steer one's choice of editor!  For the moment I, too,
find Joe the least awful of the readily available *nix editors (but...
the *pico* bindings?  Long ago (but not long enough: I still recall it)
I used pico on an early middle ages Xenix box that offered few choices. 
I was so glad to get away!)
