yeah, sure. But did you look at them?
I only browsed them quickly, but many don't seem to be relevant,
and the few that *seemed* to be relevant, mentioned the Sciviews
web page on "Editors for R"
and that has one line for 'vim' which gives a link that goes to
a "vimscript" page that gives the above mentioned 'funnel.pl' ..
So, I think Michael is still looking for more useful hints...
