Comment(by willimm):

 As for vim in /bin, it will work, but with some issues. The main issue
 with this setup is that if you decide to later recompile Vim aganst GUI
 libs (for the graphical editor), vim will get linked aganst those libs,
 and Vim won't function if the partition where the GUI libs are (could
 either be /usr or /opt, in my case) isn't mounted. So, that has to be
 taken into consideration.
