I don't have time to go and re-read the beginning of this thread, but I 
recall that very early on, everyone agreed that 'merging' couldn't be 
done by
cutting and pasting because of the incompatible structures involved. The 
conversation was about how each mode accomplished this or that (e.g. 
indenting), and which features were offered by each.

You mean that this whole cacophony could have been avoided if we had 
just assured Dave that no cutting and pasting would occur?
