Emacs Starter Kit

This is a fork of technomancy's emacs-starter-kit, and ofcourse this is from the v1 branch of the repository. So the instructions that apply to that apply here as well. Some parts of the general organization have also been borrowed from topfunky's emacs-starter-kit as well.

I have added some personal modifications notably starter-kit-c and starter-kit-erlang for better defaults to c and erlang programs respectively. starter-kit-erlang is pretty bare bones and only has support for distel, and nothing fancier e.g. rebar, quick-check etc. distel is available as git sub-module, which implies that if you clone this repository, you need to do:

      1. git submodule init
      2. git submodule update

to get the correct version of distel.
