I use evil and org all day long.  Basically, there is very little clash
between them so they co-exist very nicely.  One of the best things about
evil is that it is almost orthogonal to emacs and you can continue using
most C-x and C-c keymap bindings.

In my case, I did add a number of bindings to evil's normal and motion
keymaps to avoid typing C-c etc. as my motivation in using evil is to
avoid exacerbating my RSI.  Almost all my commands are non-chorded key
sequences.  I barely use the control, shift and meta keys in normal
