Good enough. Thanks for the reminder, Ag. Sorry about the perception
of my reply, nothing really was meant by it. Let's move forward knowing
that I simply misunderstood your intentions, and then didn't word my
response exactly correct.

I suppose there is merit to using graphical Vim for text selection, though
I rarely find the need to select more than a screen full at a time, which
I can do just fine in text-based Vim. In the rare instances when I need to
select more than fits on one screen (which is quite a bit as my xterms are
large and vim uses the whole xterm window), I simply cat the file in an
xterm and then select as much as I need from the xterm, or I can fire up
a KDE or GNOME editor.

Keep that sweetie in your arms for as long as you can. There will come a
day when you won't be able to, and that day will come too soon.
