The comments on the ticket are getting long and difficult to read - 
that's one of the main reasons Gerard opened up a new thread in lfs-dev, 
so let's get discussion going there, if possible, and we can bring 
summaries back to the ticket.

Anyway, eek!

Moving vim up in the order is only a personal preference and goes 
against the entire purpose of this change, IMHO. We're trying to show by 
the order itself, what depends on what. Nothing *depends* on vim, so 
leave it at the end.
