It does yes. I am working on a solution; I think that the undo changes
mean that this should be easier to implement.

Consider this:

(defcustom viper-mode (cond (noninteractive nil)
                            (t 'ask))
                            .....
                            

And the viper-mode function...

(defun viper-mode ()
  "Turn on Viper emulation of Vi in Emacs. See Info node `(viper)Top'."
  (interactive)
  (if (not noninteractive)
      (progn
         'actually-turn-viper-mode-on.....)
  (if (eq major-mode 'viper-mode)
      (setq major-mode 'fundamental-mode))
  )

I normally run tests in batch, but viper automatically switches itself
off. It's going to make testing viper essentially impossible without
working around it (easy to do, but it would be good to understand why
it's like this).
