Bug#3189: nvi over-cautious about .exrc?

I'd say this is a good policy. Although at times I've been aggravated
by some of the debian packages and install scripts holding my hand
(no, I *don't* need deliver for sendmail to work, etc.), but then I
have to admit that the typical debian user isn't integrating their
machine into an existing NIS, automount, etc environment, and if they
are they are capable of cleaning up a few places where the Debian
scripts assumed a little too much.
As far as adding an initial user goes, it isn't to hard to clean this
