There are many features introduced in this new version that really worths
the update.
Besides the spell-checking the new tabs feature (kinda like firefox tabs) is really
useful for those who spend much of their time in front of an editor.

It's also advertisement for the new L{B}FS-releases,considering the fact that there 
is a great interest into the OS community for the new version.

Anyway the job is done for vim.

Just a question for you as a BLFS editor.

If LFS released with vim-6.4 is it still possible for BLFS to release with 7.0?

I tend to agree with your general points though.
