The regular visual is the last keybind from vi I learned to use and i for me
would prefer it, 'cause it's one key to be pressed. My mind is very impaired
for this use case, and suggests only one alternative: sam or teco addressing.

More on this: I don't remember how that works in TECO, but in sam (and acme)
you can execute verbs on an address that matches a character range. For example,
imagining we are editing this email I'm sending with this patched sandy,
:#855,#859d would delete the word 'sandy'.
