Well, just to stir the pot a bit: TM is great -- I've hardly opened up
XEmacs in the last couple of years. But there are a couple of important
missing bits of functionality that have at least been hinted at for TM2
that, in fact, do make me mutter under my breath every time I encounter
them (for me, those are the lack of smarter undo and multiple viewing
panes in a single window). I am not complaining (well, I guess I am, a
little), but, as a paying customer, I don't think there's anything wrong
with prodding Allan every so often (as long as it is done with good
humor and the usual well-deserved praise for the work done so far!).
