with that sucky 'nano' editor in the base boot system. *SMALL* and easy to
build is what it is all about at this point. Eventually as the system gets
father into the build process I bring up full MicroEmacs then the full
NanoEmacs is small enough to stick in a RAM disk and not notice then
you end up with instant load times.

Meta-% gets Quire-Replace
Ctrl-SPACE sets the mark
Yes, it is easy enough to do myself in the config files but if their not
