"Some things you do for Love"

All you really need is to love, well and truly love, what you do.

When you love what you do, you work to get better at it just because you can. When you love what you do, it shows in what you do, and people can see that. Because when you love what you do, you've put a lot of work into it and you're good at it.

Wishlist: "cmacs"

Y'know what would be cool? It'd be cool if we could rewrite emacs to use common lisp instead of emacslisp, and then combine it with the window manager.

There are already window managers in common lisp. (For example, StumpWM. I can't say how good it is though, since I haven't bothered to get it to play nice with kde-greater.) And common lisp is a full programming language on the order of C/Java/Javascript. Furthermore, emacs already tries to do ninety-nine percent of everything you could ever want to do anyways. Why can't we just universalize that?
