Vi has never used the arrow keys, at least not by default. Maybe
other vi-simulators have, but you should *never* depend on those
working because you never know when you might accidentally be using a
different vi-simulator, or one that is configured differently.
If you do vi, then you know hjkl, and you should never, ever be using
anything else for doing cursor movement.
