This is a feature I use alot in other VI editors:
Mark the top of some text with "'a", then mark the bottom with ''b". Then do the colon command:
":'a,'by" (read, yank starting from bookmark a to bookmark b into the buffer). For some reason, this
doesn't work in jbvi.
Note that ":'a,'bs/foo/bar/g" (search/replace between bookmarks) works fine.
WorkAround: mark top with 'a, mark bottom with 'b, then navigate cursor to top with "'a", then do
a "y'b" (yank to bookmark b)
