VIM Productivity Tools

I've just implemented this VIM tip in my .vimrc. Its a couple of instructions to auto-close parenthesis. So, for instance, when I type "(" it automatically appends a ")" after the cursor. I quite like this feature in Eclipse so it's nice to see it in my IDE of choice as well.

As noted at the bottom of the tip page there are a number of plugins available which purport to do the same thing but this is the simplest thing that does what I require, so I'm sticking with it.
