Sorry, no--it just lives in my home directory with no replication to the

I know some people put their personal dotfile repos on the public Web
but I'm neither that much of an exhibitionist, nor that proud of some of
the kludges I come up with, nor willing to provide support services for
such things.

This one, I expect, will either sink into oblivion or be taken up by
someone with more Vim syntax-fu than I have.  If the latter, I am happy
to consult on fiddly *roff syntax issues to get the thing as robust as

of Vim's matching facilities, even if the escape and control characters
are not changed.  But I don't know exactly what the limits of such
facilities are.)
