This seems the best approach in my opinion.
I totally agree that having something simple is important for new users.
My only fear (and it applies to any default editor choice) is that the
default will be changed only by a minority of new-users, or after many
FWIW, I still use nano *precisely because* getting vi thrown at me so
unexpectedly was so damn annoying I flat out refuse to learn it. In
other words, being the default was *actively harmful* to vi's chances
in my case. :P
