Yes, I agree to that.

Michele, do you think it would be too complicated for the setup skript
to behave differently in case the EXT addon was installed or not?

The general idea to have only *one* editor being fired up by the 'vi'
command on the shell prompt as well as by pressing 'F4' within Midnight
Commander sounds very fine for me - do you think we can get this feature?


postscriptum: Jef, I have some difficulties to read your reply-postings.
              Do you think it might be possible to setup your Reader to
              let it put a '> ' in front of each cited line of text?
