      Sure, unless you're the first sucker to try it out.

      You should still check any scripts or patches from a source you don't
      necessarily trust for malicious content. Colorscheme files distributed
      with Vim should be fine, but you probably ought to do at least a brief
      look-over of any you download on your own. Of course, you'll want to
      do that anyway just to see what exactly it defines (and doesn't
      define).
