Mohammad-Reza, Mohammad, all:

[comment #5 comment #5:]

> _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.

That's an argument in favour of _ed_ , which allows stdin and stdout, AFAIK:

printf "a\nThese\nthree\nlines\n.\nw dummy_file\nq" | ed

should create the file _dummy_file_ with those three lines. :)

Would _ed_ be an acceptable compromise in _basic.mk_ instead of _nano_ ? :)
