I've retrieved slightly more current sources for that tiny editor,
ae.  I'll try to get a debian package put together for it tonight,
so you can take a look.

It may still require a configuration file in the user's home directory,
and consider lack of this file fatal. If so, we'll probably want to
change this if we decide to use ae as our arrow-key-driven
everyone-can-use-it-right-away-even-if-they-hate-it tiny editor.
