I'm only speaking for myself [obviously], but I think this would
be an excellent idea. I'm using nvi on my FreeBSD server; works
fine. But using it on my Ubuntu desktop dails because the
"default vi" is vim. vim and nvi are incompat. Having using vi
since the earth was formed, I am waaaay stuck with it.
Please do keep me posted if you rxpand nvi.
