A set of comments at the end of the file, I'd have to look up a sample 
somewhere to get at the specifics, but there are emacs users on this 
list (and even the porter of Carbon enhanced emacs hangs around here), 
and I think they can provide much more detailed answers of how emacs 
does things.

Yup. I've switched to BBEdit and my own macros a long time ago... Once 
the specifics of the emacs solution are posted I'll attempt to 
integrate them with my scripts and publish those.
