vi, of course . . .

If you want to use that heretical emacs contraption, you'll get performance
almost as bad as the current IDE.

For crying out loud, I'd go for ed or similar if I could have
response times In tenth of seconds rather than full seconds (there is not a
circumstance in which it is reasonable that the IDE take a noticeable
fraction of a second to respond, yet a "good" time is closer to 2s than 1s
. . .  And 3s is not rare)
