But vim isn't an IDE, at least not as I understand one. Isn't there a
distinction to be made between "IDE" and "programmable text editor", in
terms of the "integration"? I've heard people assert that dynamic languages
don't mix with IDEs but AFAIK most IDE features come from the Smalltalk
browser, and Smalltalk is of course an incredibly dynamic language in terms
of typing and dispatch.
