Hello Nick!
   Just got back and found a lot of mails. :-) So I'm replying in reverse 
order. :-)
   VI is fine with me. But cursor keys would be great. Reasons are obvious: We 
might know of VI and you seem to be used to it. But many others don't. Second 
minor reason: The best hand to fool around with is usually the right one, with 
me as well. So the keyboard is to the right of the computer. The cursor keys 
are farther to the right of the keyboard, so not so much stretching. And on a 
standard keyboard the cursor keys are easier to spot (they have their own 
block to themselves.
   But of course working with h/l and j/k is very fine to start and see how it 
works out. NJo problem about the X-libs having to be there. the ugliness would 
have been to start X. It adds overhead and loads of things I don't need, and 
thus don't want. :-)
   Onto the next mails...
   Kindly yours
