Ahh, so you're talking about the scenario where you actually connect to
the device via terminal emulation. *nods* Fair enough.

Still, if you can avoid it (or if the phone limits your capacity to SSH
in), I would suggest editing your file outside of your phone. Either by
exporting the file via some a virtual / networked filesystem (NFS?) or
just exporting it to the phone (rsync).
