I gave Xiki a try and it turned out to be an dependency hell on arch
linux. After installing dozen of packages from AUR, I managed to get
it up and running.
Its nice and some of the ideas could be shamelessly stolen for
org/org-babel. E.g. the mouse-support is great and would fit well to
org if we think of emacs on tablets.

However, I think it is in a very very early stage and one would need
to see how it develops. I do not like the ruby-bridge. This looks to
me very fragile and I had bad experience with python. Those bridges
tend to break whenever there is a change on one of the sides ext.
language or emacs. It also changed the entire appearance resp. face of
my emacs session not sure why it did this. Feels a bit invasive and

Nevertheless, its good that this kind of things get tested out and
maybe in a future release of Emacs, we can see some of the ideas in
the Emacs core.
