Re: Bug#434206: ITP: moe -- powerful text editor for ISO-8859 andASCII character encodings

I don't think we should be adding more programs to the archive that
can't handle multibyte encodings.  I believe the default character
encoding for new installations is UTF-8.

GNU Moe is a console text editor written to be stable, compact and powerful. It is the middle point between GNU Ed and GNU Emacs, and it deliberately doesn't support multibyte encodings.

When editing configuration files or source code written in ASCII many people want something like Moe, not another buggy and/or bloated editor of multibyte encodings.

So perhaps it is not so bad the idea of adding GNU Moe to the archive.
