the current vi package is actually nvi, the purpose of that was to  
have a smaller package for core that also would not stall any updates  
of vim/gvim while vi sits in testing.

Th vim package is not uglier then it used to be before, actually it's  
less complex now because I don['t have to cater towards three  
different package from the same source that all depend on each otherl.  
It's down to two packages now vim and gvim
