Your post reminds me trying jr's patch is still sitting on my todo list! 
I'm still getting faster after my conversion to vim, but it's now my 
daily editor.

Indeed, the vim support for POV-Ray (3.7) comes by default on most all 
unix based systems because it comes with vim itself. POV-Ray (3.7) via 
Debian support is there on a good many linux variants too. I installed 
v3.7 on my raspberry pi 4 via a usual package install.
