Yes, and in fact even more than that (which can be dealt with the way
that ra_svn's find_tunnel_agent does by tokenizing): the editor might
be defined as something needing the full power of the shell, such as
"HOME=/home/erik vi". (Whether or not this is an important case, it's
something we've supported for a while and it would be unfortunate to
break people's config files.)
