FWIW, apl-pkg is much more than a wrapper around an external editor. Similar to gnu-apl-mode, apl-pkg provides a number of tools for programming-in-the-large.

Of course. I did not intend to disparage your (or anybody else's) work. My intention was to raise the level of discussion from a small implementation detail as to how to start an external editor to the more important issue of how to provide a pleasurable development environment (which the commandline+external editor is not, IMHO).
Before aplwrap and apl-pkg I very much liked gnu-apl-mode. A couple years back -- after having used Emacs for four decades -- I wanted to *finally* learn vi, so I ditched Emacs and switched everything over to vim (and more recently, vis).

As someone who lives in Emacs, and have done so since the late 80's, I find it surprising that you decided to move to vi, but that's not for me to judge. :-)

My personal opinion is that Emacs is the awesomest thing ever, but the more tools the better. :-)
