[arch-dev-public] Drop VI from [core] (was Re: [arch-general] Winter Cleanup of [community])

Hi again,

If I understand correctly, vim has now been included on the live medium.
The vi package has been an orphan for some time now, and remains an orphan.
Judging by the comments in this thread, most devs wish to use vim instead of vi.
A symlink can be added so that vim provides /usr/bin/vi. (This is not
as good as fixing hard-coded values in several packages IMO, but good
enough for now).

Can the vi package be dropped?

Best regards,
