just built and installed latest rev (10571) and it seems to work
flawlessly: I can change the editor for user balducci like this:

Defaults:balducci   editor=/usr/bin/<whatever>, ....

without the need for anything else (EDITOR/VISUAL export or "Defaults
editor=..." or whatever)


and thank you very much again for your valuable work and for making it
freely available
