I would suggest using "normal! " in the script as suggested here (

I had to locally modify the plugin to work correctly since I remapped <Up>,<Down>, etc..

I've noticed that at least some of the movement commands (]j, ]J, ]f and ]F at least) don't update the jumplist, so CTRL+O doesn't flip the user back to their previous position. An easy solution would be to modify the script to manually add the previous position to the jumplist by changing the mappings from this:

map ]j  :call PythonDec("class", 1)<CR>

to this:

map ]j  m':call PythonDec("class", 1)<CR>

There may well be a more elegant solution, but that seems to have worked for me.
