      Just try it while at the end of non-empty line and see where cursor moves. Don't
      you think that there is some purpose of existance of <C-\><C-o> alongside with
      <C-o>?

      Zsh has reasonable wizard that creates initial zshrc and does not require much
      time to get used to it if you are already familiar with bash. Most of bash
      functions will work in zsh as well, but you will need to rewrite prompt and
      bindings (it looks like they can not invoke any functions so it is easy with
      ``binkey -s'').

      It also has some very useful modules: zpty (an analog of expect), zmv
      (rename/copy/link files); ttyctl (restores tty settings after application exited
      or crashed), PCRE regex support, hooks for everything, globbing flags (capable
      of replacing `find' and any `find | ... | xargs ...' pipe, though with some
      perfomance penalty), parameter expansion flags (for example, escaping a string
      stored in a variable no more requires sed, just ${(qqq)VAR}), highly
      configurable completion... Just start using and you'll never want to switch
      back.
