Well actually on my live slackware 14 (x86) vi is a link to elvis
Although both are installed, by default vi is linked to elvis (and it's not something I did manually).
PACKAGE NAME: vim-7.3.645-i486-1
COMPRESSED PACKAGE SIZE: 5.2M
UNCOMPRESSED PACKAGE SIZE: 24M
PACKAGE LOCATION: /var/log/mount/slackware/ap/vim-7.3.645-i486-1.txz
PACKAGE NAME: elvis-2.2_0-i486-2
COMPRESSED PACKAGE SIZE: 655.0K
UNCOMPRESSED PACKAGE SIZE: 2.6M
PACKAGE LOCATION: /var/log/mount/slackware/a/elvis-2.2_0-i486-2.txz
looking at the sizes I cannot but agree that on the miniroot vim is just eating up space (just guessing that the arm packages will me more or less the same size) and on top of that there's 120Mb of dependencies to use it !
I remover the unused dependencies and added in elvis saving some 120Mb of disk space on the miniroot.

Hmm. I'm going to replace vim with elvis as this works without bundling
