Now we know exactly who to blame! 

	"People don't know that vi was written for a world that doesn't
		exist anymore -" 

So, lets move on to something better.

I know vi is one of the defacto editors in unix. But is continuity

ever conceived?  Why else would the unix world not come up with a
simple, elegant, and effective text editor... that is unixy?
