Re: Idea: units of insertion.

I think the "unit of insertion" idea is useful, but would find the
analogous idea of a "unit of deletion" to be even more so.  This 
would just involve treating any sufficiently large sequence of
single-character deletions as a kill, by pushing it onto the 
kill buffer.  This solves the occasional problem of rubbing out
past where you intended, and possibly losing something that is
difficult to reconstruct.
