    esc = select the last "stuff" just typed

    The fact you can create your own "buttons" that do basically anything is pretty nice, but you REALLY want a 3 button pointing device to use it. It also doesn't care about the programming language you use to create such a button, but you will work with the filesystem metaphor provided by Acme itself to get things done.

    I find the mouse interface is extremely fast, and when you couple it with the power of the plumber in Plan 9, it's a reasonably good way to navigate around a complex workflow.

    It's also a reasonably small environment in terms of lines of code. The Go version (Edwood) is pretty good too! https://github.com/rjkroege/edwood

    Avo is a library that simplifies writing complex go assembly, I found it very useful to figure out how instructions map onto Go's asm syntax. But you could definitely do the translation directly, it's what c2goasm did (couldn't get it to work reliably unfortunately).
