Don't know! Really!
I use some time Makefile or ansible recently for various things. I still do
not find pragmatic reason for learning Emacs. As said before this is only
my opinion, but I think it is important mentioning this, given the
propaganda around Emacs. One can live and do everything without Emacs. For
the enthusiasts, they are free to to choose how deep they dive into Emacs.
