Simple editor (ee?)

        Wonder if we should add this to the wiki list:

        NetBSD should provide a simple text editor - its ridiculous
        to expect a new user to start with vi (note: vi is my editor
        of choice, but I defy anyone to argue that it is suitable
        for a new user who just wants to edit rc.conf)

        Users can add editors from pkgsrc, but there needs to be
        something *always* available.

        FreeBSD picked ee (in pkgsrc as editors/easyedit).  Its
        not to big (78K), only links against libc, needs no other
        files (apart from termcap). It includes its own mini curses
        (20K) but doesn't work correctly with NetBSD's curses

        What do people think?
