Perhaps, but I'm puzzled how that explanation would apply to emacs and
those who use it as a swiss army knife, doing everything from editing to
email to laundry in the same editor...
(Note: this isn't a flame about emacs, nor vi for that matter, just a
discussion about the apparent conflict in the two philosophies embodied
by the "simple little programs" and the "emacs" approaches.)
