I won't ask which is better, since I've just read some of the colorful 
net discussions on that topic.

However, I've been mucking about in each, and am about to pick one to 
learn well. I get the impression that this list is about 2 to 1 in VIMs 
favour for usage (where either is being used). Is this roughly accurate? 
If so, is this because of VIM's potential to be compiled with Ruby 
bindings to it's API?

Thanks,
Nick
