First of all: This is not against you, Vincent. :-)

I am just wondering if we shouldn't be more chary of using 
meaningless (or soliciting) phrases like "powerful" in 
package descriptions in general.

According to their package descriptions, we seem to have exactly
six powerful text editors in Debian. These are elvis, jove,
mined, ne, nedit and zed. Emacs, vim and many others do not
belong to them. Does that mean these are less powerful than the
powerful ones? 

Best regards - Juergen
