Fixed :--) This is probably the biggest pet peeve I have about
vi/emacs flamewars...people don't seem to think of vi as anything
other than plain vi on a non-color terminal. Just like emacs has had
new features added*, so has vi(m).

* yes, it is evidently possible to add features to an "editor" that
already does everything...don't ask me, it's something about
transfinite numbers :--)
