      The plugin I'm talking about can be found right here: https://github.com/Chiel92/vim-autoformat
      I thought that it was a good idea to utilize formatprg, since it looks like it exists for this one purpose: to format text using an external application, whatever the text maybe. Why do you think formatexpr should be used for this instead?
