In my opinion, we have a proliferation of tools and Emacs packages
that is unhealthy: too many of them clash or interfere and do the same
job, actually. It appears to me like the job of reencoding could well
be done with X-Symbol. Now X-Symbol's default mode of operation would
imply editing texts that are saved externally in TeX encoding. If
that is unfeasible for external manipulation of texts, I would think
that it would be a reasonably simple extension to let X-Symbol save
the reencoded stuff to a separate shadow file while the original file
contents get saved to the source file unchanged.
Am I being insane here?
