So it's "evil" versus "vimu", I guess. I don't have a clear favorite,
so I'll try to list some pluses and minuses with both ...
+ clever ("extensible vi layer")
+ fits in with the "vi vi vi is the devil's editor" mythology
- may be difficult to search for
- "X is evil" often means "X is broken" in the software world
+ multiple interpretations ("vi/Vim emulation")
- maybe too Vim-like to suggest originality
