Well, I thinks it depends. If there is also (apart from the nano in
/bin, which is to be used for rescue purposes) a nano in /usr/bin (which
normal users would use to edit their text files), I agree with you. I
think however that we should not have the situation that an editor that
is commonly used by normal users, has default settings that do not make
sense to them.

Kind regards,
