Hi Coert,
I recently switched from emacs to vim, and I was wondering how to make  
ipython working in vi mode too. I googled for this but didn't found  
any howto or information. So I quit searching. It would be nice if you  
could eventually post here your results. Just as a reference to the  
other interested users.

Thanks in advance,
