Same here.

I do not really understand the need to have a 'window manager' inside vim. I'm a long xmonad user and I think tiling window managers are great (wish there would be a worthy native os x implementation), but adding yet another plugin to my vim setup doesn't really seem feasible, especially when one can map its core functions with a couple of lines. Vim provides uncountable ways to manage splits, including resizing, switching etc, and then there is still vim's great tabs feature to be discovered to reduce the on-screen mess splits can produce...

That said, hat-tips to the author for managing to create a plugin for vim using its rather obscure vi/ex language.
