I would support adding a simple text editor to base. I think that
easyedit is a good choice. Whatever small problems it has (such as
using the "wrong" curses library) can be fixed.
I would also support setting EDITOR=easyedit in appropriate places at
install time, under control of an extra question in advanced mode, or by
default in novice mode.
