Please feel free to send me any changes and, so long as they're 
designed to not
get entangled with windows/linux (ie. uses has("vms") when needed) 
I'll include
them.  One more thing: please use the version of vimball available from
http://mysite.verizon.net/astronaut/vim/index.html#VIMBALL so that 
your changes
will be applied to the latest version.

The Vimball plugin does not work on VMS. When a vba archive is sourced, the
sourcing produces a lot of errors. At least some of them seem to be related to
directory paths.

To reproduce:
1) download a vimball plugin, e.g. align.vba from

2) copy to VMS (I needed to un-gzip, zip, FTP, and unzip on VMS)

3) vim align.vba
    :so %

This produces a screenfull of errors (see the attachment).
