a crude command line (hell, i have vim'ed config files with /bin/bash as
my init process and a half borked kernel that would boot 1/5 times...).
I don't want my config's to be put all in the hands of some program, to
*have* to use a config program (with all the odds and ends it migth
have...) in order to fix a broken config. Now imagine that program
needed another program, which needed a service wich needed ... the thing
you where just trying to fix.
You don't *have* to use a config program, the keys are all vim hackable.
It might be a royal pain, however, to add a bunch of keys with an
editor. Tweaks would be easy enough though.
