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.

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.
