.vimrc for root user

Whenever you do sudo vim somefile, your .vimrc will not be used, so your pretty color scheme won't be used etc. If you want to have a .vimrc file for the root user, create /root/.vimrc. If you're the only user ever using root, you could even symlink your own .vimrc file from /root.
