There's a howto on for renaming/removing conffiles, but I
haven't found anything about moving between packages.  Since it's not
necessary to move it from vim-common, it may be better to just leave it

Alfie brought up the question of whether vim-tiny should install to /bin
instead of /usr/bin.  Of the 3 editors that are currently "Priority:
important" (ed, nano, nvi), ed and nano install binaries in both /bin
and /usr/bin.  I think having vim-tiny install to /bin would be a good
idea, even though nvi didn't previously do so.
