[VIM] Move screen before cursor reaching top or bottom

It's interesting that I didn't realize I had been living without this feature for years as a vim user. Thanks to @tenderlove and @searls for publishing their vim setup session video. In the beginning of this video, @tenderlove adds set scrolloff=2 to vimrc. scrolloff is a good config that everyone who's using vim should have in their vimrc.

What it does is to tell vim to move screen before cursor reaching 2 top or bottom lines (2 is an arbitrary number). Give it a try. I bet you'll like it.

I went observe on JetBrains' IDE, they are configured to behave the same with setting scrolloff=1 on vim.
