Please don't use ae. It looks like various other editors, but doesn't
react like they do. Neigther vi nor emacs mode is working and the vi
mode is dangerously broken.

What about joe or zile or mcedit or if you realy need a small editor,
take zsh and its editor script..

I also would love to have mc on the rescue disk and with that mcedit
would be the editor of choise.

May the Source be with you.
