second that. I think vim is a great piece of software but ...
its somehow really "kind of bloated". Its so overloaded with
functions, that I refuse since year to use it as my standard

The normal sysadmin expects something like vi. He reads an
vi handbook, and we should provide such kind of standard vi.

The ports collection exactly covers things like vim, emacsen,
etc ...

BTW, robert, if you already think of terms to "waste" time
for loadable editor modules ... the only thing I'm really
missing in standard vi is an extended command line with
- history function
- save history and
- editable like everything other compiled and linked with readline lib.

That would be a great change to nvi, that brings the most important
user friendlyness, that really would be a big win ...
