	Perhaps I am mistaken by what this tool affords (I have no  
familiarity with vi) and perhaps this has already been mentioned on  
this list (I am not sure where else I would have learned about this  
tool), but couldn't one use the "Vi Input Manager" with TeXShop to  
address a number of the issues mentioned in this thread?


I don't know whether the subset of vi commands it includes is robust  
enough to satisfy some of the previous uses listed in this thread,  
but perhaps those with an affinity toward vi could try it out and  
report back to the list.  (As I understand the description, this  
input manager only works with editors that use the Cocoa text system,  
so both BBEdit and TextMate are excluded.  Not that those are not  
very fine editors in their own right.)
