Well, I disagree. I have no trouble at all developing in Lisp
with "vi" (properly-indented Lisp at that!), but I rather
suspect I'd go nuts with Python's significant-whitespace rules
no matter *what* the editor was!
 And while it's fine for me personally, I doubt that most of you
would consider its basic paren-matching and "operate-on-matching"
[for "operate" = move-to, delete-to, or shift-left/right] to
qualify "vi" as being "Lisp-aware"...
