There was a virtual package 'editor':
8 Aug 1996 Added editor
20 Aug 1996 Added sgmls, removed metafont, dvilj, dvips
25 Nov 1996 Removed editor (should have done this a long time ago)
Why has it been removed? Now it would be really useful.
Some essential package could depend (really recommend, but since
apt ignores it, we can't use it (*hint*)) on 'editor'. I think
for textutils it would seem natural to do so.
