Counterwish #2: Dump VimScript and replace it with EMCAScript (maybe using SpiderMonkey) so that people don't need to learn a new language just to change the color scheme or keyboard mappings. Yes, this will break backwards compatibility. Tough.

Don't? WTF EMCAScript? If you want to replace vimscript by something I already know (yes, /I/ am people), use COBOL, BASIC or FORTRAN. Or even ALGOL. At least vimscript uses the same commands as those which I type at the vim command-line.

OTOH, some other "people" prefer LISP. But replacing vimscript by Lisp has already been done: it's called Emacs.

Or if you want to scrap ex-commands everywhere (even when typed-in by hand, one by one) and use EMC-WTF instead, go ahead, I'm not detaining you. But don't call your new editor Vim.

Best regards,
Real Programs don't use shared text.  Otherwise, how can they use
functions for scratch space after they are finished calling them?
