[VIM] context-dependent attackers

FYI, in cases like the recent integer overflows in compilers handling
the "i>sizeof(int)" expression, you can't know ahead of time whether
the affected applications are locally or remotely exploitable.  I've
started using the phrase "context-dependent" to handle these cases.

Libraries are also likely to have context-dependent attack vectors.
