quiet, you vi heathen! My emacs god will smite thee! :)
more seriously, the "fastest" way to navigate really depends on what you're
used to. Although if you look at key strokes vi-mode is the worst:
three keys (Esc, 0, i) to perform the equivalent of one (Home) or
As for getting home/end to work: the correct $TERM for wscons terminals
appears to be wsvt25m, not "vt100" (which is in wscons.conf), nor "vt220"
(which is listed in /etc/ttys and is what $TERM gets set to by default)
I'm guessing the default value should be changed, but perhaps there's
a reason that it's set to vt220?
