Last time I looked, all of the Vi-like modes (including Viper)
were *major* modes, which means you can't use them from within
another major mode... such as Lisp!

I would be interested in trying a Vi-like *minor* mode that
would work inside any major mode (such as Lisp mode). Do you
know of any?

Lacking that, I'll stick with "nvi-1.79" for my Lisp hacking...
