      Now you begin to resemble a troll.

      The pretence that Vim denies choice in the "missing EOL" scenario is
      unconvincing.

      That imaginary situation is mere misapprehension. Are you unaware of the
      existence of .vimrc? That's where your divergent defaults should be set,
      making them suit personal needs.

      The script provided upthread via URL is a slightly complex behaviour
      modification, but all the work has been done. Even if copy-paste of the
      script is a great burden for some, it does provide the desired behaviour
      (and therefore choice) after that herculean effort, does it not?
