I've been finding the notebook interface terribly lacking for basic text 
editing. A lot of mouse moving, not a whole lot of keyboard combinations 
to move the cursor and highlighting.

I've found two emacs mathematica mode packages. Anyone ever used these? 
Had any trouble with them? (I'm not too concerned with pretty-print, so 
that is not an issue.)

  Is the notebook interface really lacking in program editing power, or 
am I missing something? Have any of you found any better solutions than 
resorting to some old emacs package last updated in 2005?

Thanks :)
