The difference is that with shift-middle click, or with vim that cannot
talk to X, the terminal sends the selected text to vim as normal input
(as if you would type it) and thus its get indented/formated/etc..
If you have mouse=a set and vim can talk to X, when you middle click
it will ask X for the selection and insert it as is without any
Oooh, aaah. Fireworks. This one's going into my .vimrc file....
You might like one too.
cmap w!! w !sudo tee % >/dev/null
When you forget to sudo vi you can use w!! which pipes writing the file
though sudo. You get some term gunk, but it does work.
