vim update.py: allow different in and out files #71798
Motivation for this change
I've got some extra vim plugins in my nixpkgs fork (that I haven't upstreamed for different reasons, not fixed, personal etc). When rebasing it often generates conflicts, so I end up using upstream generated.nix and at the end of the rebase call ./pkgs/misc/vim-plugins/update.py .
One issue is that I am not sure how to import these in my overlay. It would be nice if generated.nix could be implemented as an overlay so that the same update.py can generate code for nixpkgs and user overlays.
