Well, which one are you actually using? I don't know about old-school vi or nvi or any of the other vi clones, but vim has a perfectly good scheme mode which will help you get the indenting right.

Second reason, most of the people I know use vi and hence I keep
learning new things. I did give emacs a try but I didn't really find
myself very productive in it. I guess I haven't really seen some one
use emacs regularly to understand it.

Well, if you get to know and love emacs, there's a strong temptation to spend all your time hacking emacs instead of doing actual work. I couldn't resist ... that's why I switched to vim after using emacs for five years.
