opposed to being able to change Vim related options in a preference
pane. There will most likely be a preference pane in the future, but
it will only deal with options that cannot be made into Vim options;
things that are strongly tied to the multi window feature, things that
are only relevant to MacVim.
As for NSUserDefaults...currently I employ some user defaults, but
only because I have not yet had the time to implement them properly as
Vim options, OR because they are temporary measures that will be
removed, OR they have to do with the internal workings of MacVim and
should not be exposed in a preference pane. Actually, there are three
user defaults that might make into the preferences pane:
That's it. For now, if you want to change these you'll just have to
use the 'defaults' command line tool (how to do this is explained on
the MacVim project page).
