I use vim exclusively for all programming, I actually switched from
emacs to vi because it felt like I finally "came home".

It must hurt a bf-playing emacs users to hear that the parts of the
code were written in vi. :-D

But I agree that teaching vi to users not really interested in editors
is more work than making a web frontend to ServerSettings.con :-)

IIRC there are several frontends readily available already.

Ick. I can never remember how to get out of vi when I've somehow 
accidentally started it. I'm exclusively an Emacs user. :D (Actually, I 
mostly use Lugaru Epsilon, an Emacs clone for other platforms that's now

been ported to Linux and BSD. http://www.lugaru.com/)
