Follow-up Comment #2, task #5431 (project weechat):

As discussed on the #weechat channel on IRC, a vi-mode would entail a few
things; key-bindings alone do not encompass what full vi-mode is.

1.- A command prompt/inteface: where typing a character like `:` places the
cursor into this location to accept commands.

2.- The ability to define a "context" where one can set certain mappings and
aliases that pertain only to that given context. User faen gave an example of

    /key bindctxt vi w /input move_next_word

With those to items readily available a plugin can get the rest of the vi-mode
working: common aliases and mappings, vi-like behavior etc...
