[implementations-list] (viper devel) Should Viper parse .vimrc files? And should "n" and C-s C-s search be integrated?

Hi all and thanks for joining the list.

I wonder:

* Would it be useful for Viper/Vimpulse[1] to parse users' .vimrc
files to see if they have used commands like :set ignorecase and
:imap, and to apply those settings, key mappings, and abbreviation
definitions in Emacs?

     * How hard is it to parse Vim scripts badly?  To parse them well?
 How should Viper/Vimpulse parse them?

* Should the "last Emacs (Ctrl-s) search" and "last Vi (/) search" be
treated as one so that the C-s C-s combo and Viper/Vimpulse's "Repeat
Last Search" command (the "n" key) will both repeat the same

Thanks in advance,

P.S.  Please Reply to All.  I am cc'ing Michael, John, and Alessandro:

^ [1].  Viper and Vimpulse provide Vi and Vim emulation for Emacs.

^ [2].  This is much easier to do right if we treat search case
sensitivity settings as identical in both Vi and Emacs emulation, at
least for search-repetition purposes.
