comment Vim: Open current windows/tabs in GVim instead
I actually found Ingo's answer to be more helpful overall, as I didn't know about sessions and could see where they can be useful outside the scope of my actual question. But you did answer the actual question more precisely, so I feel you should get the checkmark of honor.

So simple, yet so powerful. I don't think I will ever stop being amazed by Vim. Thanks!

comment How to backup SVN repository from one server to another
Nevertheless we've been stuck with 1.6 in our company until quite recently, ourselves. The version worked "good enough", so quite frankly they were not "too outdated".

comment How to backup SVN repository from one server to another
There are actually a number of perfectly good reasons why people might be using old software. Corporate environments, for example, where a migration to a newer version might affect thousands of systems and does cost real money, are usually slow to jump to new versions. (That's one of the reasons why "release early, release often" doesn't cut it in the corporate environs.)

comment Invoking vi through find | xargs breaks my terminal. Why?
The main question was "why", not "how to avoid it", and it's been answered to satisfaction two and a half years ago.

revised How to change the inode size on an EXT3 partition?
Shoutout to moderator slhck, who deemed it necessary to delete a 2 1/2 years old answer for "off topic"; apparently he knew better what my question was about than myself.

comment How to set umask globally?
I was under the impression that /etc/profile wouldn't do for X11, as it would be only sourced by the appropriate shell environments. Since this answer did work for me, seems I was wrong. ;-) The file I actually ended up editing (as I'm running a Linux Mint / Ubuntu) was /etc/profile.d/umask, which is sourced by /etc/profile (and results in my edits not getting nuked with the next system update of the latter). Thanks!
