A question raised at the meeting: how to use the emacs menus in text mode?
The command to access the menus is tmm-menubar, which is by default bound
to F10 and to ESC-`. Don't expect the menus to unfurl when you enter this
command. What happens is that you first have to select a menu, either by
scrolling through a list in the minibuffer (then enter to select), or using
a keyboard shortcut (e.g., s for Search). Then pick a menu item the same
way: scroll through the minibuffer list, or use a shortcut. The shortcuts
in both cases are show in a split window buffer.
Don't know about CUA-compatible editors. You might try gnotepad+.
