'errorformat' is global-local. Different filetypes can set a buffer-specific value.

How is Vim invoked, is that argument passed to it? Vim never understood this.

comment Make GVim (or any program) always run as current user
I think you're attacking this from the wrong angle; just don't launch gvim via sudo, and you're good. For other users, why would you impersonate them, and you'd notice it's not "your" Vim because of missing customizations.

comment Scripting a precompiled Vim with Python, Perl… — are the DLLs all I need?
It's definitely safer to have the entire package. Try it out (as this depends on the language); if you get "module not found" errors, the DLL isn't enough.

comment How to separate Vim themes for LUI and GUI with same general configuration?
You didn't specify how and what you want to configure, so I'm not sure. I've added a basic example that switches the colorscheme itself.
