i use version 6.4.6

I cannot speak for the author, but I would guess the best you're going to get here is a graceful exit in your old Vim. The script seems to use some very basic features (for loops and a list data type) which just don't exist in versions prior to 7.0. I doubt very much the author will be willing to re-implement the script for earlier Vims, although he he may provide a "finish" statement for earlier Vims, to prevent the error messages (and render the plugin inoperable).
In short, your best bet is to use a more recent Vim. 6.4.6 is now close to 8 years old.
