What's the easiest way to achieve following:

Whenever I save a file with vim:
- vim will check in the current working directory (the directory in which vim was saved) whether a script with a certain name exists. (e.g. vim_save_command.sh)
- if the file exists vim will execute it and pass as parameter the name of the saved file (which could be in a different directory)

This has to work under Linux. (even better if it also works under mingw / cygwin / windows, but not required)
