I do that and I don't even particularly like vi.  While emacs can start
quickly (less than a second on an E3000 and 2 seconds on a U5 270), at
work and at home my .emacs files load a ton of extra packages that
really slow down load time (about 15 seconds on the P4 1.4ghz on my desk
at work), but add some tremendously usefull features, like better object
browsing, prompting me on the arguments of a function when the curser is
on it, etc.

I hate moving my hands all over too, but I have to keep reaching over
and hitting the reset button every few minutes anyway.
