Vimball is a plugin-manager which allows distributing an entire plugin in a single file which will be split into the correct default runtime directories.

The vimball plugin facilitates creating, extracting, and listing the contents of "vimball" archives (*.vba). Vimball also records the files extracted with it and can remove them.
