      I didn't tell about multiple people editing the same file or editing log
      files. I told about _ONE_ person editing file which could be read by another
      process at the same time. Isn't vim designed for it too? Don't think so.

      And keep all /etc files in cvs repo? It's only pinning the blame on another
      application (cvs, in this case).
