Even then, it will have to be a script of 'gvim -f' because gvim forks 
by default (which commonly causes the caller to think the editor is 
done.)  Possibly enable-able in config files or something, but...  
Maybe just symlink your /etc/alternatives/editor to something that can 
grok whether it is on a tty or something.

I still wish that whole kvim+kpart thing had panned out.
