I'm planning at the beginning to implement simple mappings, (:set
VAR=VALUE equivalents to (setq VAR VALUE)) and later will see how
things will develop. Truth to be told I'm mainly using shiftwidth,
tabstop, showmatch and textwidth and emacs equivalents aren't always
obvious due quite non-uniform interface (vi did this right).
