/. has made us the favor to DoS the GNU ftp repository before the mirrors could update themselves.
Meanwhile, if you fellow reader is willing to take up on an exciting open-source project, how about reimplementing Emacs from the ground up in XUL (the Mozilla interface layer that achieved the lovely capability of being as slow as Java) with a Lisp interpreter written in Java ?

Can you see AOL using Mozilla as their default browser (not just Gecko) ? Heh
