Yesterday, I hesitated a lot to write this in my list of possible options. I
think that POSIX (and maybe other standards) compliance require the presence
of a VI editor ... but since we do not follow the POSIX standard in a lot of
way this might not be a very important issue after all.
Nano is just fine (although I use it only during installation) and the place of
the traditional ex-vi is in a museum ... so I must admit that this would be my
favorite option too :)
