May I suggest the following cosmetic changes?


Reorganization of Vim packages


The Vim suite of packages has been reorganized to better provide
advanced features in the standard vim package, and to split the CLI and
GUI versions; the new packages are:

- vim-minimal: identical to the current vim package
- vim: now includes all the features from gvim, but without GTK/X support
- vim-python3: same as gvim-python3, but without GTK/X support
- gvim: same as before
- gvim-python3: same as before
