vi.bat helper

Andrew Pennebaker
The Vim installer for Windows helps to add "vim" to the command PATH by adding a vim.bat file in C:\Windows. Could the installer also add a vi.bat file, so that developers can invoke Vim by the even shorter command "vi"?

vi.bat:

vim %*

Cheers,
Andrew

Those who need it can do same thing themselves. One letter is not
actually hard to type and `vi` has its own meaning, mostly “tiny
version of Vim” (in Debian-based) or “featureless Vi-like editor”
(i.e. busybox `vi` applet) now.
