yeah, sure. But did you look at them?
I only browsed them quickly, but many don't seem to be relevant, and the few that *seemed* to be relevant, mentioned the Sciviews web page on "Editors for R" and that has one line for 'vim' which gives a link that goes to a "vimscript" page that gives the above mentioned '' ..
