MozillaBuild 1.4 is missing the vi and view shell scripts,
which are present in older versions of MozillaBuild.

These scripts are useful to people like me who started
using vi before vim existed.  As bug 495810 comment 2 shows,
it's common to use the "vi" name.

In MozillaBuild 1.3, I have:

$ cd /bin

Wan-Teh Chang@PC3 /bin
$ ls vi*
vi  view  vim.exe

Wan-Teh Chang@PC3 /bin
$ cat view
#! /bin/sh

# File: view

exec vim -R "$@"

Wan-Teh Chang@PC3 /bin
$ cat vi
#! /bin/sh
# Copyright (C) 2002, Earnie Boyd

# File: vi

exec vim "$@"
I switched to a totally different vim package in 1.4 (bug 495810), and it's a native Windows build, so presumably that's why it doesn't have a shell script. Should be easy enough to put them back.

I added back shell scripts with the same commands:

They'll be in MozillaBuild 1.5, which should be finished soon.
