big brother is watching me.

An xterm just came up with this message:

"The default editor in FreeBSD is vi, which is efficient to use when you have learned it, but somewhat user-unfriendly. To use ee (an easier but less powerful editor) instead, set the environment variable EDITOR to /usr/bin/ee"

Isn't this the best reasoning why it should stay as it is?
Wouldn't it be cool if there was an option you could toss in make.conf, like VI_PREFIX=foo, which defaults to /usr of course? Then people who want to move vi to /bin could rebuild world without worrying about it redoing such a move after every big upgrade, and people who don't want it moved, do nothing.

Not that I encourage feature creep or anything.
