That's funny, because my dislike of "dancing back and forth" led me to
Vim, which never requires the mouse. If you have to favor one, it
seems to me you should favor the keyboard, given that you can't enter
text with a mouse. Vim is modal, so editing is done with single
(unchorded) keystrokes and your hands never leave home row. It's fast,
ergonomic, ideal for laptop keyboards or telnet sessions, etc.

I just wish you could use Lua as it's scripting language. Anybody know
of such a thing?
