[wingide-users] vim :w doesn't save a copy

Hi,

When using VIM key bindings, if I press:

ESC,:w path/to/new/file.py

wing saves my current file as this file (which is intuitive), but not
what VI/VIM does and is there for inconsistant. VI/VIM treats :w
path/to/file as "save a copy of my current file there", but it does
not open it for reading, so subsequent calls to ":w" without a path
parameter are supposed to save to the original file, not one specified
by the last used parameter to ":w".

Cheers,

Tim ^,^
