I disagree. After all Editor MACroS was once a set of macros for an
editor called TECO, while vim is an extension of vi - that required
even the add of the macro language, AFAIK.
And a "roughly Turing-complete mini-language", sorry, is not a good
thing. Expecially whenn compared with a language that was borne as
a demonstrated Turing-complete formalism :).
Vim may have been a good thing under Amiga (where there were editors
you could have controlled with Arexx, doing _very_ nice automation
jobs :) ).
