Package: vim-common
Version: 2:8.0.0197-3
Severity: wishlist


The default value for the mouse global variable has been changed from empty
string to "a" starting from stretch.

This is annoying and does not respect what is documented as the upstream
default value:

'mouse'                 string  (default "", "a" for GUI, MS-DOS and Win32,
                                                 set to "a" in defaults.vim)

Can we bring back this variable to default to empty string?
