In addition: in debian, you have a package vim-python, although you might want
to get vim6, with folds and special support for python indenting style (put
this in your vimrc):
au BufNewFile *.py 0read ~/.templates/python.py
" see also :help smartindent , cinwords
au FileType python set autoindent smartindent sts=4 sw=4 tw=80 fo=croq
" turn off the C preprocessor indenting
" (allow comments in Python to be indented properly)
au FileType python inoremap # X^H#
au FileType python set foldenable
