      Perl, awk and others were designed to be "like a
      more powerful sed". Vi and vim were designed for a
      different job, namely *visual* editing.

      That's not to say vim can't be used for stream
      editing. But since it wasn't designed for it, it
      shouldn't come as a surprise if there are hiccups
      along the way.

      My 2 cents would be: use the right tool for the
      job.
