OK.  The only reason this was a problem for me is because my root
partition is kinda small.  Without the hard link, the 0.9 version of
/bin/ed was still around as /bin/red, and my root partition was
running out of free sectors...

One thing that's odd: My root partition is 16800 sectors long (40
cylinders at 420 K/cyl.).  When I run df, though, the total size of
partition wd0a is shown to be ~15900 sectors.  I know some extra
sectors are needed for extra copies of the superblock, etc., but 900
of them?
