Really?  What are your numbers and how did you come to them?  Because
every linux user I know uses *emacs or vi* except for one that uses
nedit.

how about install 'jed' by default (a lightweight emacs clone, about 950k) and make it use /etc/alternatives/emacs ? At least people dependent on emacs (such as myself) wouldn't be completely helpless on a system that only has vi.
