vim-minimal annoyance

Since the vim-minimal package came into existence, it's caused a fair bit of
mucking around and frustration here (broken .vimrc; time to figure out
what's going on). (Especially as each update wants to re-install vim-minimal
which we don't want.)

We're so used to vi === vim [fully featured] on Cygwin. At the very least -
when the full "vim" package is installed 'vi' should use it.
At the moment, I'm having to get everyone here to uninstall vim-minimal and
manually setup a sym-link (or alias) to get back to the behaviour they've
always had.
