Fine with me. I am a bit warry about naming it "ee" as I remember issues
with that on FreeBSD (e.g. programs expecting something else under that
name), but that is a separate question.

What I don't want to see is ee (or easyedit or whatever) as default
editor in VISUAL/EDITOR, but that again is a separate question.
