Base Set: Suggested additions & removals.
I would like to have `mc' and the two packages it depends on placed
into the base set. We could then get rid of both `elvis-tiny' and
`ae', and be left with a powerful tool that is easy for beginners and
experienced folks alike. There ought to be room for it; the total
size of `mc', `gpm', and `libgpmg1' is 379K + 98K + 14K = 491K.
`elvis-tiny' is 82K, and `ae' is 82K also. 491K - 164K = 327K. The
fifth base disk is not full, so it ought to fit in the same number of
`mc', the Midnight Commander, has a very nice editor built in now.
It should be set up to use its internal editor by default, for our
Midnight Commander is *so much nicer* than the so-called
"traditional" `vi' editor and a command line. Linux is an evolution
over "traditional" Unix, right? Let's make it so.
`mc' will let you look inside of and install `.deb' files also.
