The number of patches looks quite frightening. From the README of nvi, the
current version dates from 2007. Now if upstream is dead and does not fix
patches, it might be preferable to remove the package altogether. Is there no
viable alternative that is still alive? Or vim in legacy mode?

I guess there is vim, which can be configured to behave pretty similar
to vi, but I personally think that having variety is good. Of course, I
won't object if you remove the package, because objectively, it is
obsolete, and I can always put it into my private package path :)
