vi-like editing is not just for large text processing.  If you are
used to vi's navigation style, for instance, you are probably much
quicker using h, j, k, l, w, f(N), d(N), y, p, etc. than CMD+Arrow (or
is it CTRL+Arrow, or wait maybe it's Alt+Arrow, ah nuts -- just reach
for the mouse).

The decision to use vi or not has nothing to do with the size of the
method.  It's a productivity choice -- and for me, it's mostly muscle

yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life
which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of
the Son of God, who loved me, and gave
himself for me."
