Technically, none of them conflict with the [extra] package because
the official files are distributed across the vim72 and vimfiles dirs,
whereas these place theirs directly to /usr/share/vim/foo/.

To me, it's a little bit of an overkill to have a package for one file
(excluding the license) when all of them are provided for by an
official package, so I would delete these if you were to ask for

But if most of them are under Laszlo, then he is (was?) an active
pacman enthusiast and twice a TU applicant. So he might still be
around to share his thoughts on this.
