The only thing I really liked is the distraction free mode. It's fullscreen (supported already by MacVim) and the text is in the center of screen with maybe 80 characters per line soft-wrapping.

      If you go to <http://www.vim.org> and enter `vimroom` in the search box
      I think you'll find that after downloading it & trying it, it does
      pretty much what you're looking for.

      Cheers,

      Phil...

          If you enter fullscreen (I'm working with "native" Lion fullscreen)
          and set the column width of Vim you should be able to achieve what you
          want:

          :set columns=80
