   Did anybody else notice that this was removed from ae?  Does anybody care
   that there will be no vi-like editor on the potato rescue disks?

There was a long discussion about this on debian-devel (IIRC), I
suggest you take a look at the archives.  The conclusion was that ae's
vi-like mode was enough unlike vi that it was confusing and sometimes
dangerous for vi users to use.
