Package: vim
Version: 2:8.0.0003-1+b1
Followup-For: Bug #837880

mouse=a is now unconditionally set in /usr/share/vim/vim80/defaults.vim

As this is sourced after /etc/vim/vimrc this takes precedent.

Would be good if this could be fixed (i.e. to honour /etc/vim/vimrc), but
I'm not really sure what the best solution is myself.
