I'm not sure that is acceptable.  "Just changing it to a file" could break an application's structure that is depending on being able to use stdin to run scripts.  As one example, vim scripts can embed python, what VIM does behind the scenes with that I don't know, and it might be able to write it out to a file or put somewhere in memory for the embedded interpreter to run, but the point is that here is a an application whose API is embedded scripts that get fed into python, not independent files that python gets called on.  I'm guessing there are other applications out there that *would* be affected by this, even if vim itself isn't (and I don't know if it is or not).
