Actually I just mean the fact that most vi bindings are single
keystrokes with no modifier-key required (and the basic movement keys
are on the right-hand home-row).

I don't like vi the editor, but the keybinding scheme is an interesting
alternative to that of emacs, (though not as good as vi fanatics seem to
think it is... :-), and with viper-mode you can easily try it out in emacs.

[I almost never use vi, but am quite used to the vi movement keys
because of rogue/nethack :-]
