I installed vim with homebrew on my macbook

brew install macvim

but the version I wish was 7.4a, the latest beta release, how can I install it?

For me,

brew info macvim

told me this:

macvim: stable 7.3-66, devel 7.4b-BETA-69, HEAD

And as such, I would have to do this:

brew install macvim --devel
