      For me, I find myself muttering at other apps most when I reach
      for a vim text-object. "What do you mean I have to hold down the
      <up> arrow until I get to the blank line, then hold down shift
      and the <down> arrow to select to the end of the paragraph?! Why
      can't I just operate on the 'inner paragraph' text object without
      all this hooey?!"

      For most of my other annoyances, I just cut & paste into vim, use
      a *real* editor, then copy/paste it back into the original app.
