    Too complex for very little benefit IMHO.

    We don't know what method was used to enable CUA-mode.  It could be a
    customization, but it could also be an explicit call to CUA-mode in
    emacs.  So that is not trivial to do right in all cases.

It is pretty easy to recognize those two methods and DTRT for them.
It is also pretty easy to recognize when neither of those methods was used,
and say "I can't figure out how to delete it".

    Ok, I agree.  So we seem to agree that the tutorial should not start
    at all if viper is enabled, but just list the differences in 
    key bindings.

In the case of Viper, I would rather have it say "You enabled Viper
mode" and not list the specific differences (there would be too many
of them, right?).
