Most is a nice color alternative to less.

I also presume that we would want vim-nox | emacs22-nox | editor.

Something I don't quite understand is the target audience: most people
who run a command line install will know exactly what they want
installed, and won't need a metapackage to do it or to bring in
extraneous stuff.

Something that might also be useful would be a nox-debian-devel
package which would include tools that everyone needs for packaging
(lintian, build-essentials, devscripts, dput | dupload, fakeroot, etc)
