I'm calling it vividchalk :).  I'm attaching what is still a work in
process.  I've decided not to go for an exact clone, after seeing how
the HTML highlighting in TextMate is rather ugly, in my opinion.
Feedback welcome; I'm still deciding how to do a lot of the Vim
specific stuff like the statusline and completion menu.
