In Search of a Problem

I don't know what to make of this. What, exactly, is the market for vim with Emacs key bindings? Vim users envious of Emacs Pinky? In the About Vimacs page, the author explains that we was an Emacs user frustrated by the lack of speed in Emacs and the necessity to learn Lisp to perform customization. I have to say I'm not convinced. For sure it's a clever hack and does indeed scratch the itch that the author had but, really, it seems to me to be a solution in search of a problem.

Update: Fixed a typo.
