I edit python code in vim using Terminal on xfce.  I find myself, not
surprisingly, having to exit "insert mode" and save changes frequently (when making code changes and wishing to test the immediate effects of
the changes in a separate terminal).  This requires pressing 4 keys:
"esc", ":", "w", and "enter". How can I configure a shortcut (ideally
using an F# key) that will perform this sequence of 4 key-presses?

This would rather be a question for the Vim mailing list.

  imap <F5> <esc>:w<bar>sleep 1<cr>gi

The purpose of the sleep is that you see the "written" message.

It may be off topic, but also very cool! Thanks for the question and the answer.
