martin krafft (CCed) had expressed interest in helping with the package
as well[0].  Although, it looks like help is needed upstream as well and
that's a larger problem, IMO.

Lately, I've been suggesting to people interested in using
vim-latexsuite that they instead use a snippets plugin (like
snipMate[1]) to setup the snippets they actually need.  Vim's builtin
compiler/quickfix features (":compiler tex" ":make") can be used to
handle checking for problems in the latex files.

I don't personally write (La)Tex so I'm not sure how effective this is
compared to latexsuite, but I do know that in its current state
latexsuite is fairly buggy and is essentially dead upstream.
