The package works fine for me with the latest Emacs (built today from
the Git mirror of the main Bazaar repository) and today's SVN Vimpulse.

BTW, this is ridiculous -- Vegard, as the current maintainer of Vimpulse
and the author of vimpulse-modal.el, is the one who should decide
whether to include it or not. You (Jason) are going to make such a
decision for him, based on an opinion of a single user?

I'm very happy Vimpulse has got a maintainer that really cares about the
package and makes it better. I have not tested it havily yet, but it's
already obvious that nothing serious is broken since the last version,
right on the contrary: Vegard fixed some bugs and added useful

Thank you very much and put up the good work!

P.S.: What I miss from vimpulse-modal.el are the unmapping functions
to complement the mapping functionality. Maybe you're going to add them
after merging with Vimpulse, as well as the Vim (un)mapping Ex commands?
