It works. It doesn't work well. I have to admit, it's gotten
better: at least ^W finally deletes to the last non-word
character rather than to the last space. ^U still clears the
whole line, and as far as I can find, there's no way to
configure it to do otherwise.

I cannot agree with those who rank modesty among the virtues.  To the
logician all things should be seen exactly as they are, and to
underestimate one's self is as much a departure from truth as to
exaggerate one's own powers.
