Agreed that those are more presentational tweaks rather than
behavioral tweaks (though I tend to only manually enable line-numbers
on the rare occasions I want it, and incsearch/hlsearch tend to annoy
me when unbidden manually).
But I too count myself firmly in the camp of "learn raw vim first, and
only then when you need extra tweaks to improve your workflow, reach
for a plugin/script."

And I try to provide similar explanations here too, though without
the 140-character constraints of Twitter, I tend to run a bit verbose
in my replies here on vim_list (as a quick search for my replies in
the list archives will corroborate).
