Last time I used MicroEmacs (which is a long time ago) it did not
preserve file mode, owner or group (it created a new file when
saving). By default Pico will wrap long lines.
I'd like an editor that does not cause such problems (e.g. vi does
all of that right -- I believe our vi also understands cursor keys).
I guess jove could be one alternative as well?
