I must say I agree with that. I will list a few different options where 
options are available (gawk instead of mawk, other editors instead of vim) 
but I don't think I'm going to give installation instructions on how to 
install all those different ones. But I'll make a note of it so that peole 
realize that they don't have to install vim if they don't want to (most don't 
do so anyways but some do because they might think vim is needed for 
something special that can't be done with a different editor..)
