Re: about update of jvim

I've been reading Tuchida san's patch, that is,

Some piece of the patch kills Vim3.0's feature.  For instance, we
can not use any digraphs with the Kanji-support.  So, JVim3.0-1.7
is not just upper-compatible version of Vim3.0.

I used to use the ``line-graphics'' feature of JVim very comfortably
with my writing work because I could use Keisen-charactors of JIS with
that feature.  I suppose that Vim doesn't have the feature like that,
even Vim5.x (but I am not sure, might be wrong...)

If you, either Sano san or Terubou san, can merge the patch into the
newest Vim without hard work, it would be the best way.  If not, I
wish the newest JVim would come with the Potato ;-)

=   Thanks.
