I had tried tried several times with Emacs, but, for some strange reason, very
soon I would experience some wrist pain and finally gave up on it.

Otoh, it does never occur when using Vim...yes, I also have Neovim installed
and start using/learning it, but it is still light usage.

My question was simply curiosity whether using non-Emacs editor is an obstacle
'forcing' me to choose some other language to tinker with. Of course, DrRacket
is always a viable option, but I simply prefer not to 'change gears' (aka
editors), if possible, when working.

Thank you very much for your input!
