lookup.vim : Lookup dictionary meaning of a word (and thesaurus too)

script type
Place your cursor over a word and run :Lookup. It will then display the list of meanings from a dictionary and the list of similar words from a thesaurus.

It talks to a DICT server to look up the meaning, so the script will need an active internet connection to work.
install details
1. Download http://gopher.quux.org:70/devel/dictclient/dictclient_1.0.1.tar.gz,  run 'tar -xvzf dictclient_1.0.1.tar.gz' and then run 'cd dictclient; python setup.py install'.
2. Copy lookup.vim to ~/.vim/plugin/ (or ~/vimfiles/plugin/ on Windows)
