Hi Alfredo,

Great plugin - just one comment; there is an error in  vimtest.vim as downloaded from vim.org (v 0.2):

function! s:ThisFile(verbose)
    echo "Running tests for entire file "
    let abspath     = s:CurrentPath()
    if (a:verbose == 1)
        call s:RunInSplitWindow(path)
        call s:RunPyTest(path)

As you can see, path gets never set, while abspath gets never used. Maybe you want to update that. Otherwise, thanks for sharing!!!
