Well, it's a legacy editor that doesn't support the default encoding
that we have in both RHEL 5 and RHEL 6; given that it doesn't seem
quite appropriate for the main RHEL distribution. You can raise
a RFE in bugzilla, or with your support rep, etc.
I think this like some other technologies (tcsh, bog-standard vi,
etc).. the shops that use them have a long history and get grumpy when
their favorite tool isn't there (heck I had to keep a copy of vi
around because vim was not compatible enough for some phd's.) I think
there is a market for them, call it ring 6 (for its heresy not to have
it installed :)).
