Since I haven't seen the elisp code in question, I suppose you would
call me a theorist. I was responding to Anthony DeRobertis' claim that
the elisp code could be a derivate of Emacs solely because it was
using "copyrightable APIs".

One step on the way to a conclusion is to figure out whether the .el
files are derived from Emacs solely by virtue of using Emacs's APIs.
