Hi Ralf,

> An editor is a fundamental tool

Yes, but stepping back a bit... do you accept that neither a text
editor, or less(1), are required on a minimal install that's just being
used as a base for producing a specialised install for a particular
task, as used in a container?

I'm unclear if you're arguing what should be in an add-on-to-base
package for typical interactive use, or that the concept of stripping
back base is wrong and should be reverted.

Cheers, Ralph.
