While you're at it... :-) I don't enable the mouse in vim, because
regular cut-n-paste functionality is much more valuable to me than using
it to control the cursor (and holding down shift is too much for my poor
brain to remembe). But on the other hand, using the scroll wheel to
scroll in vim would be much more valuable to me than scrolling through
the xterm buffer.
I would absolutely love it if I could have the best of both: button 1-3
and motion events handled by xterm, but wheel (button 4-) events passed
to vim. As I understand it, it is not possible to ask xterm for only
some of the buttons. But if someone hacked this in, and hacked vim to
support it, he would have my gratitude.
