For me, in what role?  As a vim user on an Arch system, or as a maintainer of 
packages for vim plugins?

For the 2nd I would of course not mind if other provide PKGBUILDs that install 
plugins so that vim-scripts-mgr picks them up.

His proposal is great, except that there is no running code :-)

I'd love to have vim go out and check for updates to plugins, similar to how 
firefox/thunderbird does, or have a package manager for vim, that I as a user 
can run to get updates or install new plugins.  However, AFAIK neither exists 
at the moment, and I'm not the one to write either.
