	Noone complains about vi beinag able to edit files because vi
 does not care if you last editied the file using Emacs, XEmacs, or
 perl -i; or cat|grep , or awk, sed etc. If vi objected to other
 editing methods, we would object to vi as well. 

	If Xadmin does not require you to use xadmin exclusively, that
 is, if I can intersperse Xadmin, vi, Emacs, perl -i; well, then, I
 love Xadmin.

	Does it?

 Little by little, moment by moment, a wise man should cleanse himself
 of blemishes, like a smith purifying silver. 239
