it's more efficient. starts faster. uses less ram. re-uses buts of e's core
to save duplication of work and it just was easier. but its available any time
if u use e +illume - it just may have been made very hard to access by system
integrators. if u want to use illume's keyboard outside of e - well you can't.
but if u have e (and the illume module) you can. it's lurking there waiting to
be turned on.
