We are bound by the original MicroEmacs license so we have to
offer it on the same terms as the original.
As for what is in it for us ... to be honest - absolutely nothing -
apart from a lot of work and lots of grief when things do not work.
So why do we do it ?? It was simply a case that in using the editor
on a daily basis we tailored it more to our usage requirememnts -
features were added to make our work easier. After 8 years of
modification we just figured that other people might want to use
it as well and made it accessible in the public domain.
