Yeah, well. I don't buy that users used to Windows need a different
Emacs that those who aren't.

The close Emacs get to the GUI guidelines for MS Windows the less they need that. The very first problem I stumbled on with Emacs was that it sometimes stole my Alt key. And sometimes when I wanted it to steel it id did not. With my patches I try to give that key back to the users and give them another Meta key.

Eh, ... and I had to steele at least one of the windows keys instead. That is because I do not want to look too friendly.
