Someone was doing one, and it's in one of the pages: I downloaded it but 
it hung in the osso xterm. I mailed him and he said he was recompiling, 
but I never heard back.

I can't pursue it myself as I don't have the toolchain or the skills 
required, but what's needed is the equivalent of the standard GTK GNU 
Emacs so that the menus work (ie *not* the dumb terminal version). I 
have no idea if this is even possible.

It also needs to be able to load and run standard .el/.elc code so that 
the expected modes work properly. This may be too much to ask, but it 
would be a pity as it's the only tool missing from the N800.
