The new version of Vim just came out, but I haven't heard anythin
about this. I don't see it as a problem; Vim is a good editor (oops,
maybe not in this news group) and adding lisp to it could make it even
better (as in closer to emacs). But bolting something like a
programming language after the fact would surely not be as good of a
solution as designing the whole program around it's implimentation
lanaguage. It might be good project, but I would say that it would
take quite some time to reach close to what emacs has.
