      This is great, Björn.

      I'll look in more detail later.

      I think it might be worth documenting git-bisect there too, as it's come
      in handy a bit, and is a way users can contribute to the project even if
      they aren't really C/Objective C programmers.

      This is great, too. Just having skim read the bulk of it I feel much
      more able to find my way around MacVim's code. And I'm sure reading it a
      bit more thoroughly later will help even further.

      I'd better finish learning Objective C! Though, to be honest, I don't
      think there's much more to learn. I know how OO programming works; it's
      just that Objective C has some really obscure syntax, such as the + and
      - preceding method definitions (which I've covered now!). Getting
      through the documentation is hard work, though, because it's written
      for people learning OO as well as Objective C, so a lot has to be waded
      through that I already know.
