color scheme
Power VIM Users like us have already wasted tons of time to choose
our favorite colorschemes, and may still not be satisfied with the
current colorschemes. So I wrote this plugin to help us out, to
meet the perfect colorsheme that we are DESTINED to be with.
just like your lovely girlfriends/wifes:)

When you use vim open a file, I will randomly pick up a colorscheme for you.
    ALL The Commands below are CaseSensitive
    if you LOVE this colorscheme,
    Enter( In Normal Mode )
    then I will never change your colorscheme again.
    if you HATE this colorscheme and don't want to see her again,
    Enter( In Normal Mode )
    then I will never pick this colorscheme for you and then
    randomly pick a new coloscheme.
    if you somehow regret what you did and want to get the hated colorscheme back,
    Enter(In Normal Mode)
    then all you hated colorschem will back to select pool, and you might see
    her again:)
    Enter(In Normal Mode)
    to see current colorscheme
Use this plugin with a large colorsheme pool
will increase the possibility of meeting the right ColorScheme for you.
So, I recommand you also use the ColorScheme Pack at:
vimscript #625
Colo(u)r Sampler Pack : Oct 2012 Update
