There is a seperate bugzilla component for this which gives you an idea of
how bad it is.
This was a nice feature but no one has liked it enough to want to work on
it but I also suspect that it is not widely known about either.

Offhand i dont think much has been done it at all, a quick look at the
bugizlla component should give you a good idea. I certainly dont recally
anyone mentionioning it much in the past two years.

these changes would only really be documented as part of CVS commit logs
and comments in the relevant files
the location (off the top of my head) is roughly something like this:
and several other files to try and deal with the various differnt Modes,
(insert, command, visual mode etc).

if you can describe the problem thoroughly it might be relatively easy for
a developer to get it working if there is already almost working code in

While it may not be as easy as other programs i still think you might be
able to do something to help nudge this along, perhaps asking and
evangelising elsewhere you might be able to get some Vi hackers
interested. I supsect there are still simpler things that are missing
but geting the modes and things to work fully seems more complicated.
Please do try, Good luck.
