     I was just about to start such a project, but I was planning on 
allowing the full screen editor to work in line mode.  I don't think I 
need any help, but I'll take ideas and suggestions.

     The plan is for vi style commands, modified to work in line mode, 
and also excluding the bang command but introducing other commands to 
take the place of running fmt and sort on your stuff.
