Don't worry, whether or not he continues it, he will be ignored.
There will be no editor in the 2.0 base system except perhaps for "ae",
and even then "ae" should only be used for long enough to get a real
editor installed from a package. "vi" was included in the 1.3 base only
because there was space for it, not as a policy decision, and I'm not sure
that was a good idea. Editors are to be installed from packages. Period.
