vi vs. emacs bindings
Authored by: sjk on Sep 21, '05 03:56:31PM

Using vi bindings in this context would require entering a mode so single characters would navigate instead of being inserted into the text, then exiting that mode when you're done. That quickly becomes more tedious than the simply adding a modifier key prefix like control or option to characters when you want emacs-style navigation. And emacs bindings are more like traditional Apple shortcuts than vi bindings will ever be. :-)
