Vim - Allowing "1 line yanked" on the message line

(To paraphrase Daffy Duck, "Ahh - terminology trouble!")

If you want Vim to always display the count of lines yanked or deleted on the message line -- like "1 line yanked" or "1 line deleted" -- you need to use the report option like:

        set report=0

Note that the Vim documentation for report does NOT mention where these reports are actually placed, making it impossible to just grep(1) for it.
