Eli's been a little cranky, but he does have a point.

However, if you never have more than an hour to devote to Emacs at one
time, and typically those hours are spread far enough apart that your
short-term memory is guaranteed to time out, working on the ambiguous
problems of extending functionality to new areas is going to be
painful unless you're extremely good at picking up exactly where you
left off.  Optimizing existing functionality may be a better use of
your time.

Nevertheless, please consider Eli's line of argument carefully, and at
least don't make fun of it.
