however, none of these were ever released officially
via the vim ftp mirror sites. and judging by the mails
on the vim-mac mailing lists there won't be any... :-/
really, i have been wishing for *years* that a current
version of vim was usable on the 68k macs - but it seems
that the threads about the problems with end-of-line,
pathnames, meta keys, digraphs, and fonts never end. *sigh*
but the potential is there! i wish some company would sponsor
to put Dany St-Amant, Axel Kielhorn, and Benji Fisher in a
think tank with Bram Moolenaar for a week to get this done...
