Understandable, I just figured that if someone didn't know what C-w did
at the shell, then they might get a tad put off when they accidentally
stutter on the w key and find that long url they typed in for wget goes

Then again, I am assuming `set escape ^Ww` to parallel the default.  If
you had different characters it wouldn't be an issue.
