vim embedded commands

A neat trick I use sometimes: it's possible to customize the settings of the vim editor by embedding commands in the file. Put them on the last line after a comment character (which depends on the language of course).
For example for python I like:

# vim:ts=4:noet

which makes sure tabs are not expanded and tabstops are at 4 characters.
