NetBeans would utterly destroy the competition if the 
editor could be bound with VIM functionality. In addition, 
emacs and brief emulation would also be great. Then 
programmers could use their favorite "hackers editor" 
within netbeans. There is not a single commercial IDE that 
has done it and the one that does will gain allot of 
customers. I really miss VIM emulation when I am in 
NetBeans. Since VIM is open source, it should provide tons 
of information for those qualified to do such a port.

There are 5 different issues related to vi / vim / emacs / other
keybindings and similar editor functionality support. Those are being
consolidated into enhancement issue 12858.
