After having read about the emacs-starter-kit on the list, I really
like the idea of having my initialization files in org-mode. As I have
many customizations already made, I don't want to dump everything to
use esk. What I want is doing the same with my own keybindings and
customizations. So I went and had a look at the code, and it seems
it's fairly trivial to do. If I have missed something, please don't
hesitate to let me know.

The bare minimum one can do is:
- rename the current init.el into myinit.org
- add the lines "#+begin_src emacs-lisp" as the first line, and
"+end_src" as the last line
- adapt the init.el from emacs-starter-kit as follows
#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
(add-hook 'after-init-hook
 `(lambda ()
    ;; remember this directory
    (setq emacsd-dir
          ,(file-name-directory (or load-file-name (buffer-file-name))))
    ;; load up the starter kit
    (require 'org)
    (org-babel-load-file (expand-file-name "myinit.org" emacsd-dir))))

Then one can start editing the myinit.org so that it is not just a
big chunk of code.
