Well, perhaps you didn't read enough?

Description: Vi IMproved, with ruby scripting support
 Vim is an almost compatible version of the UNIX editor Vi.  Many new
 features have been added: multi level undo, syntax highlighting,
 command line history, on-line help, filename completion, block
operations,
 folding, unicode support, etc.
 .
 This package contains a version of vim compiled with ruby scripting
 support.


But anyway, I really like Emacs.  And, I really like elisp, but
perhaps I'm a little funny in the head?
