    The editors Sam and wily, for one. Sam is a direct port from Plan 9, the
    first OS to be fully UTF-8 based; wily is a reimplementation of acme, another
    Plan 9 editor. Both run on Unixoid systems with X, and Sam also has a
    Win32 port. (I'm not sure what a "programmer's editor" is, but all Plan 9
    users are programmers, so I guess they qualify.)

    To say that Bilbo's breath was taken away is no description at all.  There
    are no words left to express his staggerment, since Men changed the language
    that they learned of elves in the days when all the world was wonderful.
