Neovim is a refactor - and sometimes redactor - in the tradition of Vim, which
itself derives from Stevie. It is not a rewrite, but a continuation and
extension of Vim. Many rewrites, clones, emulators and imitators exist; some are
very clever, but none are Vim. Neovim strives to be a superset of Vim,
notwithstanding some intentionally removed misfeatures; excepting those few and
carefully-considered excisions, Neovim is Vim. It is built for users who want
the good parts of Vim, without compromise, and more.
