people seems to get very annoyed by our change wrt .virc and .vimrc and 
setting compatible mode in .virc.

I think we should make the fact that 'compatible' mode is enforced 
in .virc a debconf question that is:

 * of the lowest priority for vim-tiny, and defaults to compatible
 * of normal priority and defaults to *nocompatible* for other variants.

that allow vim-tiny to have the expected behaviour in d-i, and most user 
to remain unannoyed. It seems to be a really good compromise to me.
