Re: Editor Priorities

OK, after some more discussions here is the new and updated list,
including some estimates. If this sounds sane to enough people,
I think we can start working on that.

* Edits files in place +20
* Wraps lines -20
* Supports undo/redo +20
* Can complete a whole editing session without reading a manual +50
* Built-in on line help +30
* Search and replace +10
* Not free -200

Vi clones: 50-80 [Depending on on-line help]
Emacsen: 80
Nano: (wrapping lines) 90 (no wrapping lines) 110
ed: 50
pico: -120
sted: 50
