So, lemme see if I have this right.
This is a new take on a shell.
...which is run from within my editor of choice, emacs.
...which I run in a shell.
...which I run from an xterm, which I spawn in the gui.
Or, maybe, I run it in a browser.
...which I spawn from an icon in Gnome.
I'm not seeing how this is a Good Thing.
