I have the sources for VISTA as well. However, it is written in PAGE8, 
which is another assembler for the PDP-8. I also happen to have PAGE8, 
so I should make all of that available, when I have time and access to 
my PDP8 systems.

I also have the VISTA manual, but I think I might only have it in paper 
form, so I guess I should try and scan that at some point as well...

And yes, I'll try to upload my EMACS-clone as well. Just give me time... :-)
