I use vim/gvim for 99.44% of all my editing, and I'm also in the
process of finding out *HOW* to make vim/gvim undent when I press
backspace on an indented line, instead of "<esc><bs>....C",
which I find a bit cumbersome.

You can check out "cream", it's a gvim configuration profile with
about, say, A TON of enhancements over plain gvim, which correctly
undents when backspacing at the end of an indented line, it just
"does the right thing".

It has a hideous showstopper *FOR*ME*, which is it's inability to
cope with spanish accented chars, most probably with it's current
configuration which is hackable, make no mistake; so it's surely
a temporary showstopper.

Like someone previously said:


>3- What is a "PEP"?
A PEP is a PEP is a PEP... :-)

It's a "Python Enhancement Proposal", like an RFC, but for Python.
