Still futzing with this thing, why I love the GPL

Since my text environment of choice is emacs, I downloaded the LiveJournal emacs client written by Edward O'Connor.

So let's see how this works.

It's got a few things I don't like. So far, specificially, how it handles the password. I don't like software that doesn't trust me to store passwords. My laptop is about as secure, both physically and networkwise, as a computer can be. It bugs me that I have to reenter the password every session, and that I can't Control-Y yank the password from the cut buffer into the password prompt in the minibuffer.

Well, that's what the GPL is for. I need to dig into this code, and fix it up a bit to work the way I want it to.
