wouldnt it be nice to *toggle* boolean yes/no options?
for example, vim has the syntax ":set option!" for this.

then Piotr's commands could be merged into a single command:

  macro index,pager .v ":set implicit_autoview!<enter>i<enter>" "toggle implicit_autoview"

(sure.. two explicit commands for ON and OFF have its benefits, too.)

also, vim has short names for many options,
eg implicit_autoview  could be "iav", and
so the toggle command could be ":set iab!".
