I'm facing a similar problem. I was hoping to find some sort of snippets plug-in 
for VIM, but haven't come across anything. I found a couple of open source 
snippet database programs for Windows. One kept crashing on my machine and the 
other was kind of klunky. LEO looks promising. I'm reading through the tutorial now.
