Follow-up Comment #1, task #15764 (project reproduce):

Nano as a default in '', and emacs and vim as _opt-in_ options in
_high-level.mk_ seems reasonable to me.

However, we could also consider adding 'ed'. As a binary it's only 1/4 the
size of nano:

$ ls -l /bin/nano /bin/ed 
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root  51552 Feb 20  2016 /bin/ed*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 225320 Jan 11  2017 /bin/nano*

and the packed source code of ed is only about 10% of the size of nano:

-rw-r--r-- 1 boud boud    6800 Feb 20  2016 ed_1.10-2.1.diff.gz
-rw-r--r-- 1 boud boud   87416 Feb 25  2014 ed_1.10.orig.tar.gz
-rw-r--r-- 1 boud boud   27804 Jan 11  2017 nano_2.7.4-1.debian.tar.xz
-rw-r--r-- 1 boud boud 1013296 Jan 11  2017 nano_2.7.4.orig.tar.xz

I usually only do very elementary editing in _ed_ , but it's convenient for
those simple edits.
