The three virtues of Perl are CONFLICTING!
If you were LAZY you would want to learn vi so as to save yourself
time and trouble over the long haul. If you were IMPATIENT, you
would want to learn vi as soon as possible so as to start reaping
the benefits sooner rather than later. Finally, with HUBRIS you would
not want just to learn vi but instead not be satisfied with less than
complete mastery of vi.
Admitting that vi (or some other programmer's editor) is superior to
pico for your tasks, but then not making the effort to learn it is
neither Laziness, Impatience, nor Hubris.
