they are possible on NTFS filesystems too but I'm not yet as deep versed as
that into the "novelties" of NT-like systems) you can just link
%USERPROFILE%\Application Data\vim to %HOME%\vimfiles (NB -- %USERPROFILE%
and %HOME% are assumed to be the same). Or you can, as a user, have a
slightly different configuration, and set your %HOME% to your
%USERPROFILE%\Application Data -- then your files will be in
%USERPROFILE%\Application Data\vimfiles which is almost what you said you
wanted, and that without a soft link.
NB. I don't see an "Application Data" subdir in my C:\Documents and
Settings\Tony (aka %USERPROFILE%) on my new (French-language) XP system. The
nearest to it that I can see is "Mes documents".
