Thank-you for your kind words.
About using Vim plugins, this is certainly possible, and any developer is free
to write and release any PIDA plugins on the community site, and they will be
available for download in the PIDA plugin manager.
The reason that we have not done this much in the past is that Vim-script
based plugins will only be available to Vim users of PIDA. This has good
points and bad points. Good: it will (as you say) leverage existing Vim code,
and bad: Vim-only.
In order to achieve things like this and reach the masses, we will need a lot
more developers. We all have heavy working schedules and PIDA is a spare-time
Please help wherever you can: dev, bugs, docs etc etc.
