Re: Asynchronous operation?

Hi Hannu,

Thank you for the significant suggestion.  I put a question to
Japanese core developers about asynchronous operation on behalf
of you.

ンド w3m を非同期で動かすというご提案ですよね。たぶん w3m-el が
外部コマンド w3m の何かの出力を待っている間に、Emacs で他の仕事
ができること、極端なことを言えば w3m-el の frame を複数立ち上げ
てそれぞれに別の URL をアクセスさせるようなことを意味している。

これは現在の M-n `w3m-copy-buffer' を発展させて、link 毎にバッファ
を作ってしまうことなんですかね。expire の仕組みが必要ですなあ。
