Well - it is more or less the reality. You can use vi, that's for
sure, but then nyou can use notepad too. Maybe it's just me, but I
think the eval-S-expr thing is absolutely crucial.

Anyway, I subscribed to the NEdit mailing lists to see if it is
possible to cook up some kind of lisp-mode there.  I love emacs, but I
agree with you 100% that it should not be the only option.

Are there any other known editors that have something like a
lisp-mode, and better, some kind of comint mode?
