Huh, I didn't know that. I've taken appropriate action and removed all
such redundant `let' bindings in changeset [82].

Yes, I removed them in changeset [81]. Sorry for being unclear.

Yes, it doesn't make much difference as of currently, since Vimpulse
is released as a single file on EmacsWiki. In the future, however, it
may bundle some sort of Info manual. Maybe we will have two downloads
then: a single big file on EmacsWiki, and a compressed archive
containing the .el files (separately?), the manual, and some
installation scripts. In that case, conventionally short names would
be ... well, it would be conventional. :)
