      Comment #1 on issue 118 by fritzoph...@...: `cib` doesn't work at the
      start of a line, while `ci'` does
      http://code.google.com/p/vim/issues/detail?id=118

      This is intentional. It's no just about multiple lines, it's about nesting.
      Consider

      1. if (
      2. a &&
      3. (b || c) &&
      4. d)

      If you place the cursor at the beginning of line 3, vab will select text on
      all four lines, because the cursor is immediately inside the parenthesis
      block starting at line 1 and ending at line 4. If your suggestion is
      implemented, only "(b || c)" on line 3 would be selected. This would break
      things in annoying and unexpected ways for things like =ab in C code.
