      I understand. It isn't just a "Carbon Vim" thing though or maybe I am
      crazy. When I have "vim" open :q closes vim when there are no other
      buffers open. On Windows and HP/UX when I use GVim and I :q when there
      are no other buffers open GVim exits entirely. It is only the MacVim one
      that behaves differently. I am not saying that is good or bad. I just
      wanted to make sure that it was the intended behavior since it is a
      "snapshot" and you would have liked feedback on it.  : )

      Thanks for the answer and for the build. I do like it.

      This is kind of funny...just after having written that long rant I sat down and did some work on MacVim only to realise the menus behave very oddly if there are no Vim windows open.  The best short-term solution was to...here it comes...make MacVim quit automatically when the last window closes.  :)

      So lets see if anybody has any objections as to why MacVim _shouldn't_ quit when the last window closes.  Like Robert says, the good side to this solution is that this is more familiar to Vim users from other platforms;  the bad side is that it is not standard Apple behaviour.  Which one do people think is the lesser evil here?
