"Can't make vim act like vi" might be a showstopper.  "The default
configuration makes vim not act like vi" isn't a showstopper--it's
trivial to change.

I guess there are two competing goals here: acting like vi by default,
for the people in a time capsule, and acting like vim by default, to
show off vim's cool features.  I wonder if there's a sensible way to
do both, eg. argv[0] for "vi" and "vim".
