The Vim8 introduction of :terminal implies the use case of pasting text from an editing window to a terminal window.

This is the base for the concept of editing and terminal windows that text to each other as peers.

textwins.vim offers the developer navigation through this dynamic network of text windows, making it just as easy to text from a terminal window to an editing window as it is to text from an editing window to a terminal.

In addition to the texting concept, textwins.vim commands and functions will interest developers who want to make more effective use of Vim terminals, especially when coupled with tabwins.vim, as exemplified in txtmux.vim.
