Pardon my ignorance, but I was under the impression that there were no gods
in the Church of Emacs :-P I must say that when I read the subject, I
assumed that someone was asking for forgiveness for using a proprietary

Without our god, we would not have the sacred source code which shows
us the way to freedom.
