Yes, Dr. Schäuble does so. :-)

The ee editor isn't that bad. Especially ^K and ^L are more
easy to use than vi's edit buffer equivalent.
While there's ed and ex in /rescue, ee isn't.
% which ee | xargs ldd
libncurses.so.7 => /lib/libncurses.so.7 (0x28088000)
libc.so.7 => /lib/libc.so.7 (0x280c6000)
Relies on ncurses, but so does dialog / sysinstall...
