Follow-up Comment #5, task #15764 (project reproduce):

[comment #0 original submission:]

> Please share your thoughts about adding text editors.

In my opinion, _vi_, _nano_ and _emacs_ should all be part of _high-level.mk_.
Text processing and manipulation in ** should be kept exclusive to
'sed' and 'awk' (even awk with compromise-because we already had sed by Lee E.

_basic.mk_ should be kept, as much as possible, loyal to the idea of having a
minimalist, POSIX-compliant, and UNIX-philosophy obedient core. Those text
editors are limited in redirection capabilities from/to other Unix core

The idea of having separate options for building these editors as high-level
tools is a great one.
