This causes vile to output it's usage message.
I know that this isn't a vile specific issue but I just want to check

If so I'll pump out a bug report against sudo since it should not
assume that functionality.
Is there a way currently to get vile to ignore a file named -- ?
As a workaround I'll write a wrapper script to remove the -- from the
