This program is intended to be a small, fast, and portable
editor for people who can't (or don't want to) run real
Emacs for one reason or another.  It is compatible with GNU
because there shouldn't be any reason to learn more than
one Emacs flavor.
Packages which provide editors with broadly similar goals include
* e3;
* joe;
* jove and xjove;
* ng-cjk, ng-cjk-canna and ng-latin;
* qemacs and qemacs-nox; and
* zile
