Meaning that John Hasler was saying that GNU Emacs shouldn't follow a
UNIX Philosophy because GNU's Not UNIX. I was saying that Linux != GNU,
and as this is a Debian list, most of us probably use GNU Emacs on Linux.
Also, although GNU Emacs was written by GNU and GNU's Not UNIX, I think
(someone correct me if I'm wrong here) it was originally written for UNIX.
