That seems like it would be very awkward to use: you'd have to type
quite a bit to go from one mode to the other.

Personally I think that insisting on a one-letter command name is not
such a good idea if you can't pick a reasonably memorable name.
I'd suggest "\gc" (\g with a Cursor) or "\gb" (\g for a Big query)
or some such.
