Actually, that won't currently work because nvim and vim look in
different places for their addons.  Also, not all addons work with nvim.

vim-addon-manager, and the addon policy, need to be updated to support
specifying whether addons are compatible with nvim and/or vim, and
handle installation appropriately.
