That's exactly my point: your options are (1) set 'magic' in your
script and make sure it never, ever, under any circumstance spills onto
the command line, or (2) litter every single regexp with \m.

I might gather the time and determination to go through that list
some day, but then I'll probably find it easier to write a patch than
write a story about it.

Yes, it is, a big one. When I need a reference, I almost always
need it right away. If I receive it two hours later when somebody posts
an answer to some list, it will be out of context for my tiny brain.
I'm an old fart researcher, and to me a reference is a reference, and a
help desk is a help desk. They serve very different purposes.

I added the link to that blog post mainly for that particular point.
There are a number of things we'll never ever see in Vim, such as more
than one font size on the screen at the same time, or minimap. Do try
Sublime Text some time, you'll be surprised how nice it actually is.

FWIW, I'm not that author of that post, and I don't agree with
everything there. I was just pointing at a different way to look at

Actually, yes, pathogen does solves the problem for some of us.
Whether you like pathogen, vundle, your vam, or something else, is a
matter of your personal style of doing things. Pathogen does exactly
one thing, it does it well, and stays out of your way. Some people do
appreciate this kind of minimalism.
