[SublimeText] Enabling key repeating on Mavericks

On OSX Mavericks, I found the J-K keys repeating was not working when using the vintage (Vim-like) mode.

It’s because of the change made by the OS for providing ‘press-and-hold’ behavior to input certain characters and accents (like in iOS), so the following command snippet can re-enable key repeating:

defaults write com.sublimetext.2 ApplePressAndHoldEnabled -bool false
