How many users for /usr/bin/view ?

Dear all,

Following a suggestion in http://bugs.debian.org/457898, the mime-support
packages links /usr/bin/view to /usr/bin/see via the alternatives
system, since the vim package also provides /usr/bin/view in such a way.

These two ‘view’ commands do not provide the same functions, which triggers
bugs such as http://bugs.debian.org/623384.

I will most probably remove /usr/bin/view from mime-support, but just in case,
I would like to hear if some people are strongly relying on it.

Have a nice day,
