Presenting "Ermacs"

I've made an Emacs clone in Erlang. It's just reached
self-hackability, so I think it's time to share it.

It can edit large files, has a built-in erlang shell, does erlang
syntactic indentation, and various other emacs-like things. Obviously
it doesn't do everything that emacs does just yet :-)

Download instructions at

It requires you to have the "S-Lang" terminal library installed (which
you probably already do).

Hope you like it :-) feedback and patches welcome.
