The code exists.  It is free libre.  So why not?  On my Debian system:

  $ apt-cache show jove
    Description-en: Jonathan's Own Version of Emacs - a compact, powerful editor
     Jove is a compact, powerful Emacs-style text-editor. It provides the common
     emacs keyboard bindings, together with a reasonable assortment of the most
     popular advanced features (e.g. interactive shell windows, compile-it,
     language specific modes) while weighing in with CPU, memory, and disk
     requirements comparable to vi(1).

Installs and runs today.  No problem! :-)
