Well, I tried to go for an almost modeless editor because I like it
better in theory. But I keep falling back to vi(m) to do serious
edits, even on the sandy code (shame on me!). Maybe I should try
adding two modes to it, see how it plays out.

The default bindings are there to be changed, of course. I imagined
emacs-like bindings (read bash-like too) would be comfy for most

About the segfaults, argh! Could you please point them out to me? Or
maybe patch them yourself if you have the time :)

Sure! don't I need a SSH account or something?
