Well, I get to use other people's systems now and then, and I'm always having
to ask people to install vim.  If vim is the default, and configured to act
like vi by default, then people who like old vi get it, and people who like
new vim can change it with just .vimrc.  A rare opportunity--everybody wins. :)
