Better line wrapping in Vim, FINAL iteration

Back in 2009, I went looking for a way to make Vim's line wrapping be indentation aware. Stock Vim did not support such an option, but I found a patch by Vaclav Smilauer from 2007 which I was able to update and over the years, keep it updated.

Then on June 25, 2014, Bram accepted the breakindent work into Vim as patch 7.4.338. Many thanks to Christian Brabandt for getting the breakindent patch over the finish line. There were a number of followup patches for breakindent, including 7.4.345, 7.4.346, maybe 7.4.352, maybe 7.4.353 and 7.4.354.

Fedora has not yet pulled those changes into Fedora 20 or Fedora 21, but they'll come in time. update: Fedora 20 updated to 7.4.417 near the end of August.
