This is a really good idea.  I think you've all done very well.

Since my name has been mentioned in vain, I shall respond in kind ;-)

I use vi because I've used vi since about 1980 IIRC; it's melded with
my DNA by now.

However, I use jEdit (http://jedit.org) to edit structured documents.
Once the new GCC classpath migrates out, and jedit gets compiled
native, you will too.  Until then, it requires a JVM.

But I'm not arguing.  USE WHAT WORKS.  Editor diversity is the least
of our problems.

I'm already an anomaly, I shall soon be an anachronism, and I have
every intention of dying an abuse!
