cursorline_current.vim : Show cursorline only in active window

script type
This plugin tweaks the behaviour of the 'cursorline' and 'cursorcolumn' options to enable them only in the current window, when not in insert mode, and/or when Vim has focus.

In its default configuration, it essentially makes 'cursorline' and 'cursorcolumn' follow the cursor around in normal mode as much as possible.  It uses each window's global value of both options as its default, so setting each option in your |vimrc| before the plugin loads should do the trick.

install details
Drop plugin/cursorline_current.vim in your ~/.vim/plugin directory. Add doc/cursorline_current.txt in ~/.vim/doc if you want the help file. Otherwise, use your favourite Vim plugin package manager.
