'compatible' is unset by default if you run vim or gvim (i.e., when
sourcing .vimrc or .gvimrc - or _vimrc, :h 'compatible' for more

The last three can be written as

How is that an example of what vim-ruby should do? The Shift-Enter
auto-completion code isn’t in vim-ruby. That’s something Pit Captain
has added to the rubygarden wiki so that you can added to your own
~/.vim/(after/)?ftplugin/ruby.vim if you want to.
Here’s an even sweeter binding that I use in my
inoremap <buffer> <CR> <C-O>:call <SID>CompleteStatement()<CR><CR>
" TODO: we can check contents of ". register to make sure that they were
" inserted while typing here...
if getline('.') =~ '^\s*\%(begin\|case\|class\|def\|for\|if\|module\|unless\|until\|while\)\>\|do\%(\s*|[^|]*|\s*\)\=$'
let n = indent('.')
let ind = ''
let i = 0
while i < n
let ind .= ' '
let i += 1
call append(line('.'), ind . 'end')
