Quick, without looking at the manual, man pages, or printed
cheat notes list all of the settings that affect any keystrokes
defined in the original vi... I certianly can't remember that
much -- and am certianly likely to fry myself walking into a
place that has customized the vi keyboard responses.

I use vile's extensions all of the time, and miss them sorely
when I'm on a site without them. But at least I can walk up
to a stock, out-of-the-box Solaris vi and get my work done
without looking like an idiot retyping things that get fried
by misadvertent muscle memory.
