One issue that could be regarded as, well, maybe not "version-specific" but
"version-related", is that when used centrally-compiled versions of Vim (for
instance mine, haha), any interpreted language (i.e., Python, but also Perl,
Ruby, TCL, and, for version 7, MzScheme) must, to be usable, be installed
with the same version on the machine doing the compile and on the machine of
every end-user wanting to use the language interface.
