* :abs.EXECs that might be called from within editors often would like to use
* that editor to print messages.  If there is no such editor, they wish to
* print normally to the screen.  EDSAY EXEC supports this.  It recognizes the
* following editors: XEDIT, LEXX, P-EDIT and PEDIT.
* Warning: EDSAY may not be used to print messages for which a reply is expected
* since the printing is delayed until after the return.  It also fails when
* there is an interactive EXEC that issues commands which may have been called
* from the editor.
* If RESOLVE MODULE is available it will be used to make a more intellegent
* determination of the editor in control.  Without it, editors invoked with
* synonyms or abbriviations directly -- not via a wrapper EXEC -- will not be
* detected (except for XEDIT).
