Also the vi that busybox provides. I assume they’re largely the same code base. My current theory is that the tags function doesn’t handle UTF-8.
RMS and the free software community
The lesson I want people to take from RMS' jump-before-pushed resignation:

Is there an argument to be made that starting services in containers is not something an init system should be doing?
Is someone doing this already?
I’ve defended systemd on the grounds that it’s the only init system I’m aware of that is able to take advantage of Linux namespaces out of the box.
Is that assertion correct?
Even if it is, I’m thinking it’s possible to create an init system that’s hella simpler that can still start services as (quasi?) containers.
Step 1: Scope it down so it’s just an init system/service supervisor, not a “system manager”
Step2: Reduce namespacing options to two or three
