        the one extension that nvi has--and the only "feature" added 
        was :wn; joy's original didn't have this.  as for vim, from what
        i can glean from the docs, it does everything but pay its own
        taxes.  ---the important thing is that we don't get into a
        spitball-throwing contest over which editor is better!
