That's not being silly.  That's just poor coding on the part of the vileget
developer.  Vileget should check to see if you have a .vilerc and make sure
you are loading  If not, vileget should create an appropriate
.vilerc for you, and by way of apologizing for the delay deposit a nominal
amount of money in your bank account.  Now that would be responsible coding.
Whomever developed this sub-optimal vileget hack was obviously not taking
their work seriously enough.  It's an insult to true craftsman everywhere.
