Hi Peter,

great reading as always. I wondered if you had a solution for a different user preference in #10: I personally prefer to have the extension intact when renaming the file to its name.

I.e. cp /path/to/file.ext /path/to/file_bk.ext

Probably not something I want to do by hand every time, but would be great as a small bash script e.g. 'bk' to first create a safe backup of a file I want to mess with and then automatically launch vim to edit the original.
