based on experience, there are some differences between vim and
traditional vi in the final cursor position after executing certain
commands.  This is what's driven me nuts the most.  Not sure off-hand
what they are, and don't have time to go and reproduce now, but i've
definitely suffered them in the past.

Also, even with -C, it still puts up the lame startup screen when
invoked with no args other than -C, it says "--INSERT--" in bold at
the bottom of the screen when in insert mode, etc.  This is visual
noise which happens to be very annoying to me.  not an "improvement."
