Description (last modified by )
The SageinEmacs interface sagemode
is broken since IPython 5.0, see #21227. sageshellmode
by stakemori is a very good alternative. This is distributed using the Emacs package manager MELPA, which should be familiar to any Emacs user (in both senses of the word "should"), so there is no real reason to distribute that with Sage or even have an spkg for it.
The suggestion is therefore simply to remove sagemode
as an optional package from Sage.

Blocker or not, I think this package should be removed in the 7.4 release.
