I could but I won't. Fact is you want an editor. You even need one to make 
changes to packages before you compile them (sed won't always do). So the 
choice is what will the book install: vim or pico or joe or emacs or nano or 
others? Here I pull rank and just pick one that I like which happens to be 
vim. No discussion, no flame wars about it. Easy as that.

No offence intended to anybody.
