You can enter sed commands at the colon prompt of vi.  For example, colon 
command to global search and replace in the file is "1,$s/old/new/g".

Not that i have a shortage of to-do items, but might it be a good idea someday 
to merge busybox vi and busybox sed somewhat, to cut down on duplication and 
add functionality?
