Great work! I found a couple of bugs, but they should be easy to fix.
There is room for some more code, but I appreciate you keeping things

I think we could aim for maximum expectability while keeping the
amount of code at a minimum: anyone using basic vi commands should
feel mostly at home when using sandy.

As a personal opinion, I'd rather not implement complex text
operations that can be "piped out" (e.g. :s/foo/bar/, upper/lower
case...) but other than that feel free to code away.

I have pushed it to my personal fork at
