You must really enjoy flame wars!
I'd pick vile (ftp://invisible-island.net/vile). It
uses the simpler command structure of vi with the
multiple-buffering, hiliting, etc, of emacs. It also
uses Perl as its macro language (instead of scheme
on emacs) -- it has rather good syntax hiliting for
Perl partly for that reason.
