Hmmm. Emacs is more powerful than I thought. It takes fewer
keystrokes to make a macro to do a command than it does
to do the command? :-)

Seriously, by this logic, gcc is far more powerful even
than emacs.  Thus, I'm going to add a new rule to your
game. Anytime someone claims that the programmability of
one editor to do something is equivalent to the native
ability of another editor to do the same thing, they'll
also be charged a beer.

You owe me a beer. Actually, I guess, since I owed you
one, we can call it even.
