Making GVim a better OS X citizen
- I rarely use the top menus to set things myself, but I was wondering:
1. Would it make sense to have a preferences section like the rest of
the OS X apps, to make it easier for newcomers?
2. And if so, would it require a lot of hacking to the point of not
being worth it?

used to be in most Mac apps. I think the standard distribution of vim
includes a "Settings Window" menu item, which does the same as
The system gvimrc file that I distribute adds a "Preferences..." item as
More recent apps have the Preferences item under the app menu, but
we do not seem to have a way to set that. See #5 on the list of bugs at
