Differences to viper/vimpulse and vim-mode

In another post I mentioned that I edited the Evil emacswiki page and I
found there this:

I thought so, too. And found it difficult to promote evil myself to
others (mostly vimpulse users), because the main reason for myself using
evil is "vim-emulation done right".
I think this is best done not only as a feature list but also as a
compilation of opinions.
The first things I came up with:
- vim keyboard macros
- recursive ones, too
- support for cursor functions (color and shape based on current mode)
as opposed to viper:
- text objects (deletion, changing, ... of text "syntactically")
- visual mode (esp. painless rectangular selection)
- modal state key bindings
- g* keys
- ... (most of the other things that vimpulse added)
as opposed to vimpulse:
- vim-emulation that doesn't feel stuck on (I felt myself with vimpulse
more times than not fighting with viper)
- changing the state for modes really does work
- actively developed
as opposed to vim-mode (I never used it)
So please chime in!
