In my pursuit of Lisp enlightment, I came across this interesting explanation of the development of Emacs for Multics.
Interesting both for the debate of whether Emacs was desirable or possible on Multics and also for the technical explanation of how Lisp was used to overcome issues involved in its development.

> The choice of Lisp turned out to be a very wise choice, for the incremental creation of the editor, through its "extensibility," could have been done in no other language.
