Re: Editor Priorities

> * Not free -200 [changed from -50] XXX

Oh, while we are at it, why not -1000000000 or just forbid non-free
editors to use the "editor" alternatives? :-)

Not that I use pico very much (my usual editor is emacs, in fact, I
have not used pico for a looooong time), but this is not a technical
feature and should only serve to favour a free editor over a non-free
one, provided they have the same features, so -1 would be appropriate.

Users of non-free packages already pay the price of having to retrieve
them from ftp. If you install a non-free editor, presumably it is
because you want to use it.

As I said, I don't care for myself, but I believe the list should
be based on technical merits only.
