Please---Emacs is the ultimate geek program. I can't imagine
expecting ANY normal person to learn Emacs. Even the name gives me
the shudders. When someone suggest using Emacs, I know immediately
that he/she and I live in different universes.<g>

I suspect most Scribus users who are in it for desktop publishing
are not bait for Emacs or vim--or TeX, for that matter. Do we really
want to scare them off?
