CM2 could be run from Emacs, so its great to hear that CM3 can be 
built to do so too.

For new users, and for teaching, the one binary with GUI makes much sense. 

Its probably much the same, either way, Randolph. 

Some of us like evaluating CM or Lisp or Scheme directly from within  
the single page of Emacs text - its the advantage of having the 
editor right there, and having quick access to evaluating CM or 
Lisp of Scheme decode.  We all use some editor.
