MinEmacs is an initially minimal yet infinitely extensible variant of the One True Editor
The first release will be a simple script that removes non-critical packages from the core distribution and adds InstallCommandOnAttempt bootstrap code - so all the original COMMANDS and all those available from various package repos appear to be available from Meta-x and/or keyboard shortcuts, but are actually seamlessly downloaded when attempted.
Please write your worries or explanations after each file or fileset, and add others with explanations
Later releases may patch the source-code and recompile a smaller executable with a plugin interface which will allow us to augment the editor in a far more vigorous manner - allowing the possiblity of Video Editing, 3D-Modeling, Gaming, etc. while remaining within this great environment.
