Thanks for your input, it works. I must have done something wrong.
Now I can see another problem that is problematic of using an editor. Even
though I can restrict the access to a directory etc when invoking rvi, I
cant stop them from writing out to a different file within rvi. Do you have
any thoughts on this or is this just a bad thing to do (include an editor)?

This wildcard is globbed by shell, not by sudo. You can do /bin/rvi
/home/jkelly/*, or add /bin/rvi /home/jkelly/x.
