+1. It seems odd to have so many pages about a text editor. Maybe even
some of the fancier non-gui configuration stuff could continue to live
in BLFS on the Vim page. But, I think I agree with Ag that the BLFS
vimrc page should go and that info should be moved elsewhere. Having
sane shell settings and customizing your text editors configuration
don't fall into the same category in my book.

Again, though, I hardly use vim (read: only in emergencies when I
forgot to set EDITOR), so I'll defer to you guys on this.
