A quick notetaking plugin for vim.

It offers a way of managing notes similar to the one in tools like Notational Velocity: file management is removed from the notetaking workflow, and creation and searching of notes can be done using the same interface. File management is abstracted and replaced by searching and sorting facilities. Notes handled by vim-pad are free-form: the plugin doesn't impose any format, and has utilities to handle notes in several formats. You can use it along other notetaking plugins for vim.
