I like this, but prefer 'post_init.lua' to 'user_init.lua'. I will commit
changes and documentation later this evening.

1. If you have a module init.lua, it will be loaded instead of the
2. If you have a post_init.lua, it will be loaded after the default. This
way you could have something like:

   module('_m.lua', package.seeall)

   function set_buffer_properties()
     buffer.use_tabs = true

Customization should be much easier now.
