A better gm command

In normal mode, typing
gm moves the cursor to the middle of the current screen line. With
'wrap' on, a long line may be wrapped so it appears on several screen lines. Typing
gm moves the cursor to the middle of the current line on the screen (or to the end of the line, if it ends before the middle of the screen).
This tips remaps
gm so the cursor is moved to the middle of the current physical line. Any leading or trailing whitespace is ignored: the cursor moves to the middle of the text between the first and last non-whitespace characters.
function! s:Gm() execute 'normal! ^' let first_col = virtcol('.') execute 'normal! g_' let last_col = virtcol('.') execute 'normal! ' . (first_col + last_col) / 2 . '|' endfunction nnoremap <silent> gm :call <SID>Gm()<CR>
I have removed the following from the tip because I can't make it do anything useful. If an explanation or fix is available, please restore it.
onoremap <silent> gm :call <SID>Gm()<CR> " xmap <silent> gm :call <SID>Gm()<CR>
