thanks, i too had been wondering about the "vim and" part of shim,
especially about the interprocess communication. you're using vim's
python embedding for that, but many vim users won't have python.
more importantly: is that python solution (using unix sockets portable, 
ie, would it work for windows vim users if they were asked to install 
python for that purpose?
