Right. I did read this mail before I upgraded, so I was kind of
prepared, otherwise I would have wondered as well. I do remember that
there was a vim/gvim related news item, but I thought the change had
happened weeks ago. Maybe it was another vim/gvim thing...

As for what to do about such a thing... I don't know. Certainly not jump
on trees if someone asks a question.
