Ah, the only possible problem I can think of would be that an "update" from
vim-enhanced to vim-X11 may not be possible. It should be possbile to do
Using alternatives would make it easier for users in another case, too. When
someone wants to remove X11 from a default Fedora install ans still keep his
favourite editor. Then one could install both vim-X11 and vim-enhanced and
after removing X11, vim-enhanced would be still there.
