Re: About standards and politics

Here's one solution to the question of whether to install VI: Make
/bin/vi a symbolic link to a more user-friendly editor like pico or
joe (the second being my favorite editor under Linux).  Then install
the real VI as /bin/VI (upper case) and make a note of it in some
documentation.  Then power-users can adjust the symbolic link; they
will know how to do that.

BTW, I corrected a couple of typos in the subject line.
