      Quite normal it doesn’t work, I made a mistake and mixed two versions.
      The conditional should be either (to trigger the special mapping when
      in the upper left corner of the window):

      if winline() == 1 && wincol() - (&number ? &numberwidth : 0) == 1

      or (to trigger the mapping in the upper left corner of the file):

      if line(".") == 1 && col(".") == 1

      As for <SID>: the “real name” of a <SID>-prefixed function is that
      function’s name with a prefix unique to the script, so that in script
      Foo “<SID>MyFunc()” is e.g. “<SNR>22_MyFunc()” and in script Bar
      “<SID>MyFunc()” is e.g. “<SNR>47_MyFunc()”. In the script itself, the
      script’s author can use <SID> without bothering to define a unique
      prefix; the automatic replacement then ensures that functions with the
      same names don’t clash outside the script.

      That’s because wincol() really starts counting at the window’s left
      side, before line numbers.
