Yes, I have watched neovim repository. I think "neovim" is the result of Vim community division. I think Vim community has 3 types people.
- Pure Vim user. Almost default settings. It is almost Vim (internal) developers. I think it includes Mr.Bram. Because they can change Vim source code easily than write configuration/plugins.
- Standard Vim user. They use some plugins and some .vimrc configurations.
- Plugin junkies. They use over 50 plugins and have 500+ lines .vimrc Including me. They are near to Emacs/IDE user. It is almost Vim plugins developers.
I have watched Vim community in Japan/other countries. "3. Plugin junkies" seems to be very growed. Current Vim is not designed for them.
There's a lot of discussion about Vim's popularity and usage styles in Japan, and the reasons why Shougo likes Vim and Vim script.
