In this case it makes sense to include bwBasic aswell.
I think Yabasic has more capability than bwBasic but the last one may be
more easy to start with.
What we may need for Yabasic is a basic mode for Emacs, however there is no
such mode in Debian. I've search for such mode in the internet and find that:
There is a basic-mode somewhere but this is a visual-basic-mode aswell.
