Haven't seen those before. I guess they are way to Ruby-oriented; although
they do use  `:compiler` to some extent (like you mention as well).

Rein Henrichs (reinh)'s plugin uses :compiler to run the

Mnnn I don't see *competition* per se here. Although the concept of
green/red bar is inherited from your .vimrc I see this (pytest.vim)
way to specific
to py.test (and Python) to consider a merge or submitting code.

However, I'm not closing the possibility to keep considering it. I
will get in touch with
them and will try to see if it makes sense a merge or code submission
at some point.

Thanks for your feedback.
