Re: Lisp vs. Scheme Emacs

Forgive my stupidity on this answer - but wasn't EMACS originally written in
Lisp, like way way back. (i.e. before we were scheme'ing)

I am sure that you can write an EMACS in just about any language you want -
but do you really want to ignore a considerable amount of work that has
already been tried and worked.  The decision was probably made more on the
basis of intelligent software engineering practice than religious beliefs. Or
at least  I would hope so.
I only .sig in "soc." groups - real news doesn't need it.
