[implementations-list] Dear readers: We need ten minutes of your time to test Vegard's vimpulse-modal so we can decide if to include it in Vimpulse or not

Thank you for testing it.  Vegard, feel free to merge it.  Please
don't forget to add yourself to the Copyrights file if you haven't
done so already.

Neither me nor Vegard are official maintainers.  Alessandro still is.
Both me and Alessandro are too busy to do any testing right now.
Because I'm the previous maintainer, Alessandro doesn't mind me making
certain decisions.

If Vegard had a longer history with us, I would have let him merge
vimpulse-modal.el right away.  But he's pretty new to the Vimpulse
community, so I was cautious and waited for someone to test it.
Štěpán, it was kind of you to do the testing.

I, too, am very happy that Vegard is around now, because it helps
Vimpulse users everywhere.

I don't know if Vegard will do it.  I hope he will read this email.
Note that the better way to suggest such things is to send a bug
report assigned to him to http://www.assembla.com/spaces/vimpulse  :)
