I second that. I'm the guy who gets annoyed at non-vi editors because I
tend to fill files in them with hjkl's due to muscle memory of 40 years
of vi usage. You'll pull vi out of my cold dead hands. I'm still quite
capable of setting $EDITOR in my own startup files. Pretty much anyone

That's not really the point. The point is that yet again more or less fictional future
users needs comes before the needs of current actual users.
As time goes by it seems the list of configuration changes needed to make a system usable
