This might be an appropriate place to mention viper-mode, which is a major mode (note, "mode"; emacs is very far from "modeless", by any definition) that implements Vi within Emacs. Since the command sets are almost disjoint, viper-mode is Vi and Emacs at the same time. That is, in viper-mode, almost all Vi and Emacs commands just work, with no mode switching needed. In practice that means that in addition to Emacs's regular command mode, entered with Alt-X, you get a Vi command mode, entered with the usual ESC.
Viper-mode in Emacs 22 works fine. I've been using it for 6 months in the beta releases.
