ee was added long ago by emacs afficionado jkh@ for the
sys installer eg /etc/inetd.conf
Small vi clones in source were available then too, on DOS 3.2 & Minix,
One was called Stevie, I can't remember the others.
Replacing ee with a mini vi clone would be a return to Unix.
One would need to co-ordinate on <sysinstall at freebsd.org>
