Just as a confirmation: I'm the author of SETEdit and maintainer of the 
RHTVision library. I talked about these issues with Robert Hoehne some months 
ago and he agreed to remove the silly additions. He also contacted RMS and if 
you take a look to the "other software" in the GNU site you'll see RHIDE.

Is a library to handle VCSA devices even if the user loaded a font and 
unicode map. It will also have toupper/tolower/isalpha for 16 bits unicode 
(the codification used by Linux kernel).

Try directly from the home page, this link is to the binary for DOS, 
something I think isn't relevant here ;-). In the main page there are links 
for the full sources and statically linker version of the editor.

Currently my goal is to make RHIDE easy to compile, publicly available 
releases (upto 1.4.7) are a nightmare to compile. Now RHTV and SETEdit are 
two separated libraries (yes the editor can be compiled as a library). The 
only problem that needs to be solved is the gdb side. RHIDE needs a libgdb.a 
and header, currently they are created by the RHIDE makefiles and that's a 
no-no for .deb packaging dependencies (the RHIDE source needs the gdb sources 
installed). So the maintainer of the gdb .deb should add a new .deb to create 
it as a package.
