Load vimrc inside Vim

While building a .vimrc configuration file, you can test the effect of your changes by loading them up while still in the Vim session:

:so %

This is shorthand for 'source the current file'. It will raise Not an editor command: <foo> if your syntax is incorrect, a useful side effect when quickly iterating through changes to your setup.
