A valid point.  For the specific case of the pager, other tools
like "journalctl" call out to it.

I actually do use Emacs, although lately I've been trying hard to consistently
use configuration/automation instead of interactive editing on even dev VMs.

When I've had to use Emacs, it's possible to do via e.g.

docker run -ti -v /etc:/hostetc /bin/sh -c 'yum -y install emacs-nox; emacs'
