Think of sensible.vim as one step above
'nocompatible' mode: a universal
set of defaults that (hopefully) everyone can agree on.
- If you're new to Vim, you can install this as a starting point, rather than copying some random vimrc you found.
- If you're pair programming and you can't agree on whose vimrc to use, this can be your neutral territory.
- If you're administrating a server with an account that's not exclusively
yours, you can
scpthis up to make things a bit more tolerable.
- If you're troubleshooting a plugin and need to rule out interference from your vimrc, having this installed will ensure you still have some basic amenities.
