Ctrl+W makes more sense as "backspace-word" rather than "cut".

    Not necessarily; like most Linux shells, PyCmd supports a few emacs-style keybindings (this is very convenient for emacs users like me). And, you guessed it, Ctrl-W is "cut" in emacs.

    Moreover, there are already two shortcuts for "backspace word" in PyCmd (Alt-Backspace and Ctrl-Bacspace); both are very common in most applications I know. On the other side, Ctrl-W has many meanings in different applications (I've never seen it used for backspace-word, but I'm sure this exists somewhere).

    In short, it makes more sense for Ctrl-W to act as "cut", at least for now. Someday PyCmd will hopefully have a configuration file where you could define your own key bindings (among other things). Then, everything will be perfect for everyone and the world will be a happy happy place :)

    Agreed?
