Going to try 'mg' (micro gnu emacs) first since it's already been ported to OSK
and the source is only 421 kb.  I spent a while pondering how to easily move the files to the CoCo after unpacking the tarball on a Linux box. Linux won't mount a NitrOS9 disk...can split it up on 2 360k disks...wish I'd got around to hooking up that 3.5 inch drive...takes forever for coco to read msdos disks...    
THEN I (cough) noticed the coco's CD-ROM drive.
