Hi Brian,

Thanks for the kind words! I wrote a booklet about my setup including
other "literate config" examples, if you are interested:
https://leanpub.com/lit-config/read

I have been fascinated by the idea of literate programming since I got
a copy of The Stanford GraphBase while I was in college. I never used
CWEB directly, but I have tried noweb and other literate programming
tools over the years. However, Emacs + Org-mode + Babel is the first
toolset that I have actually been able to stick with on sustained use
:)

Best,
--Diego
