That's not a very good way of describing editors/joe.  It is unfair both
to other editors and to joe itself.

There *are* good points about joe, eg.:

  - It works very well even with pretty dumb terminals.

  - It has a very small footprint

  - It supports many features a `coder' expects (auto indentation,
    custom tab sizes, macros, etc.)

It is much nicer to describe the *good* points about joe, instead of
making silly jokes about keyboard shortcuts in other editors.
