Jeremy likes Emacs.  That's for certain.  I personally use 'vi' (or
whichever god-awful implementation 'vi' happens to be linked to on the
linux box at the time, it's been both elvis and vim at varying times).

I dislike using tabs whenever possible, especially since the default tab
in emacs appears to be 8 characters, and the default in vi is 4.  Boy do
things start to look funny.
