Running Vim within IRB Jump to Story

We have a strong affinity for content which is delivered in 5 minutes or less. And, over on vimcasts, Drew Neil just put together a really useful screencast making use of the interactive_editor gem. With it, you gain a new command in IRB called "vi" which launches an external Vim session in which you can create and edit your IRB code. It's worth a quick look, especially since it's only about 5 minutes long.
