comment How do I change the colour of text matching a regex in vim?
@Gnouc: mark.vim supports Vim 7.2, 7.3, and also 7.4. The version given on vim.org is the lowest supported one!

comment Can you further integrate and present sequential moreutils vipe command output in vim using successive splits etc?
You're right, it's just a concept, not a complete solution. With more than two invocations in the pipeline, that is probably much more complex. I wonder whether it isn't sufficient to just manually :write! save-pipe, followed by :pedit save-pipe whenever you need it?!

The temp file is created by vipe (using something like mktemp()), and that filename is passed to Vim, I suppose.

comment Where should xt.vim be put on osX?
Commands that start with : are given in Vim; if you're new to Vim, try vimtutor (in the shell), or any of the many Internet resources, e.g. vimcasts.org

You don't need to copy them; Vim looks in both locations (see :h 'runtimepath'). I would recommend looking for a newer Vim package (if available); Vim 7.2 is from 2008!

The leading . makes the file hidden; this is customary (on Unix and OS X) for configuration, so that it doesn't distract you. ls -a shows those files.

Yes, please put your custom Vim files at ~/.vim (creating dirs if necessary); the /usr/share/vim location is a system location; never modify that; you'll lose changes during upgrades or reinstalls!

comment less command and syntax highlighting
@user1147688: If you carefully read Felix's answer, the GNU source-highlight is an external program, and the integration with less is very loose. It's not less that does the highlighting; but Vim indeed has this capability built-in.
