Bug#84387: ae keybindings problematic when installing via serial console
The keybindings of the ae-editor are very problematic when installing
Debian on Sun-hardware via serial-console. A simple vi would do much
better. Could ae be replaced with vi (or at least configured to use
a vi-keybinding) for Debian/Sparc? One can safely assume that people
running Debian on Sparc are familiar with vi. On the other hand, it's
more than just a bit problematic to send wild Ctrl-Meta-Whatevers
through a Terminal-program like minicom.
Distribution is potato and others as well.
