(As e.g. visually selecting the middle of a tab block would require
(a) changing the original file in a way like v2 did
(b) lots of extra code
Maybe this should be an extra option, independent of ve? (Or even not optional?)
Considering this string-sort of option, which would be other indicators
to toggle between ve and nove? Insert mode and command mode? More ideas?
Anyway, I'd like first to have some comments whether ve4 behaves ok. :)
