Kakoune logic for that is to treat multiple selections on same line as columns,
so the first selections on each lines are aligned together, eventual second
selections are aligned together and so on.

Not sure if vis uses only cursors or selections, but the logic of aligning
cursors by inserting before the begining of selection does work well, as
it handle left and right alignment.
