Hi James, I'm sure I'm missing something here, but doesn't :!python %
command run the script as __main__? It sure does spawn gui windows for
me. What exactly is the problem with using that command? It does not
return you to the line where the error happened but the runscript.vim
you mentioned doesn't seem to do that either.
