      I use vim with Terminal.app all the time. I mostly use Gvim in cases
      where I want to use the mouse a lot.

      I don't entirely understand the antagonism some folks in the Mac
      community have to Terminal.app; the older OS X versions had weak
      implementations, but the one in 10.4.7 is pretty good. It performs as
      well as iTerm on the old vttest program, for example (better on things
      like double-sized characters).
