Package: neovim
Version: 0.1.4-1
Severity: wishlist

Please consider installing alternatives for /usr/bin/vi, /usr/bin/vim,
/usr/bin/view, /usr/bin/vimdiff, and so on.

(If nvim doesn't already support using "view" as an alias for "nvim -R",
and vimdiff as an alias for "vim -d", then don't install those
alternatives until it does.)
