I have the same problem, although it's the opposite.  I wanted the
image-viewer instead of the text-files editor. :)  Unfortunately, certain
utilities seems to use ee by default like vipw.  Unfortunately, I can't
move that.  My solution was to change my PATH variable to reflect
/usr/local/bin first. Since I never plan on using the editor.  however it
would be nice if they changed the name of the binary.  Raster, what do you
