Well, to me Vim can do almost anything, so I'd rather use it for
programming, emailing, and writing books. I'll grant you that to draft
a one-page memo to a colleague it's probably easiest to use OO or
Word, but in this day and age you're probably going to send an email
anyway, and not a Word doc.

Trying to stick to the email topic, consider how much easier it is to
grep the /Mail folder, or use Mutt's ~b search, instead of trying to
figure out Thunderbird's clunky search interface.  To use just one
