      If he's not willing to compile vim himself, ask if he is willing to
      install the version from lenny, which is (currently) 1:7.0-219+1. This
      will at least get you close to the latest.

      Your other alternative is to compile it yourself and leave it in your
      own ~/bin directory. I've not tried mucking with the "install" target
      to get make to install in ~/bin and ~/.vim, but you can build it and
      manually move the files yourself.
