As nobody has mentioned it yet, I'll bring up microEmacs

If memory serves is uses emacs keybindings to manually do what one would 
expect, but doesn't have the bloat -- or power -- of elisp.
It was used on Amiga and Atari ST back in the late 80's into the 90s.
If the source code is available it might compile more to your liking.
