There aren't any (aside from C-w). I'm considering adding some, but
I've not got round to looking at that yet.

That's a new feature which isn't present in any previous release. The
manpage alludes to it by saying "... matching the tokens in the
input", but clearly it would be nice to be explicit. This will be done
by our next release, which we plan to be at Christmas (alongside dwm).

Proposed changes are always welcome. ;)
