I am just experiencing zile and I find it quite good. And, btw, it is
meant primarily for boot floppies.
Another argument is that zile is "kind of" a stripped-down version of
Emacs, and Emacs is the standard editor for the GNU system, which I am
sure most of the people on this list are using.

LPRng is far more secure and robust than anything else. LPR is an
insecure pseudo-standard, while LPRng is more configurable, better
designed, more RFC-compliant. CUPS is nice too, but does lack a lot of
"drivers" in its free version, is buggy and a lot of security problems
are found too often.

Nope. Ipchains are still emulated. And people migrating from 2.2 will
likely appreciate having it at hand.
