I like a variation on that idea. How's this: we divide editors into two
categories--newbie-friendly and non-newbie-friendly. All editors in each
category get the same priority (and the friendly ones are obviously
higher priority than the unfriendly ones.) Then instead of trying to
come up with a complicated list of relative values we only need to
define "newbie-friendly". Perhaps something like "screen oriented
text-mode editor with on screen menus". Or whatever.
