comment bulleted lists for plain-text documents in Vim
@languitar I get the idea we’re pushing edge cases. What I’ve done since posting that comment is to separate out Vim configuration common to all text formats and put that in one file, and ditto for config that applies only to editing code (irrespective of language). These files are loaded based on the file type. Hence, I now set things like formatlistpat only for editing text or text-like formats.

comment How can I make zsh's vi mode behave more like bash's vi mode?
Thanks! I find it a little worrying that, after all this time, we still need what is essentially a hack and a workaround to make a core bit of zsh functionality usable!

comment bulleted lists for plain-text documents in Vim
One could sidestep the quoting issue by using let rather than set, e.g: let &formatlistpat='^\s*\(\d\+[\]:.)}\t ]\|[*-][\t ]\)\s*'. (This adds support for * and - as bullets, in addition to numbers.)

comment How can I make the Sign Column show up all the time even if no Signs have been added to it?
Indeed, it seems that the commit which added it was made on 14 March 2013 — exactly two weeks after your question!

comment In Mac OS X Finder's column view, how do you show all columns, up to the list of volumes?
The "rooting" of the Finder's column view at the most recent folder that's docked to the sidebar stays in effect whether the toolbar or sidebar is displayed or not. (You can show/hide the sidebar independently of the toolbar in Lion, with cmd-opt-S.) That said, you're right of course, one can always just cmd-up to see the parent folder.
