Installing nano-tiny in /bin [was Bug#92003]


I got this wishlist regarding nano-tiny. First I thought I just couldn't
install the binary in /bin, but now I can't say that so clearly:

- nano-tiny is really tiny; version 1.0.0 was 40380 bytes. That's
  smaller than elvis-tiny, for example.
- nano-tiny is woody bf's editor.
- it uses slang, which is in /lib.

So I need comments (not a flamewar). I know 40k are 40k for /bin, but I
think it'd be nice to have a friendly editor there when you screw your
/usr partition and so on.

Severity: wishlist

nano-tiny is small editor. If i'm correct it is used on boot-floppies (or
sth. like that ;))

But on normal system it Conflicts: nano, so i can't have them both
installed (nano for normal work, nano-tiny when only / and not /usr is

Would it be possibile to have nano-tiny placed in /bin ?
It could be placed as /bin/nano-tiny for example.

I prefer using nano(-tiny) to vi not mentioning broken ae :(

Thank you.
