1 Unless anyone can come up with a good reason not to, I'm seriously
2 considering masking then removing app-vim/{vimspell,vimirc}.
4 vimspell is a nice idea, but it's hideously buggy. vim7 supports native
5 spellchecking which actually works, so development on the various plugin
6 spelling related tools has effectively stopped.
8 vimirc looked like it had promise, but unfortunately every new release
9 introduces more bugs than it fixes. It's usable, but it hasn't turned
10 out the way it should have done...
