But how does the user know that? I'd rather stay away from dwim that works in 99% of cases but do something dangerous in the 1% remaining, and complex un-guessable escape scheme to solve these few cases. The two stages (yes/no/edit, and then escape patterns) is clear, and does not require so many additional keystrokes. -- Matthieu Moy http://www-verimag.imag.fr/~moy/ -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe git" in the body of a message to majord...@vger.kernel.org More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
