Hi Nicola,

I wonder if you have seen my vim runtime files:

The main file to look at is the syntax highlighting file. I haven't compared
carefully with your version (haven't installed vim 8 yet), but there are a
few differences. It may be worthwhile to merge the two syntax files.

The metapost syntax highlighting file defines a few keywords that are used by
metafun. Could these be merged to your mp syntax highlighting file?

The indent file is adapted from (I think) latex-suite's indent file with 
modificiations that suit my taste. I am not sure these should go into the 
default vim indent file, but it may be worthwhile for you to take a quick 

The ftplugin file mainly contains shortcuts like `a expand to α, etc; again,
adapted from latex-suite (which in-turn borred the idea from auctex). These
depend on a ftplugin file provided by latex-suite. There were also a few
macros to reflow text, but your code is more robust and has more features.

The compiler file is old and I haven't tested it in a few years, so please
ignore it.
