Hi Rob,

On a different subject, in 'xpp', could you make a series of deletes (one or
more) a unit of undo?  At the moment if you do a lot of typing, and then
keep delete pressed down to delete it all, then there is no way of
retrieving the typed text....

By the way, Tom did a survey today in Hanoi of the Viet Flyspeck workers.
It seems 7 out of 8 use 'xpp' in preference to 'emacs'.  That's better than
the cat food adverts!

Regards,
Mark.
