yes I know, but it seems impossible to invoke mode() before leaving
Visual mode. To invoke mode() it requires that a function call from the
command line is done and this always deliveres the information that
Normal mode is the current mode, also if the last mode was Visual mode.
The reason I want to know what the previous mode was is because I create
a function that makes changes on the text depending on if the text was
from a visual selection or if a range was specified.
