Oh, please. There is no problem, therefore nothing is being hidden.
We're not talking about an actual bug in the package, we're talking
about a personal preference.
Are you seriously suggesting that if someone submits a wishlist bug
asking that nvi support the key-combination "^KK" to delete a line I am
required to leave it open forever? Because it's *exactly* equivalent:
the functionality exists, just not in the form the submitter prefers.
The irony is that Bill Gates claims to be making a stable operating
system and Linus Torvalds claims to be trying to take over the
world. -- seen on the net
