Please, let's not continue evangelizing and promulgating what is probably

Here's a thought: if you want Vim, use Vim. Really, what's this fetish in
the industry for importing thing X wholesale into thing Y?

I like TextAdept precisely *because* it's not OOP and as a Vim user, if I
want to use Vim, I fire up Vim. I don't want Vim in every other bloody
piece of software I use!
