That has been the default binding on Mac OS X forever.  (Well, indirectly.
The default key sequence it puts out is ESC-b, which is the default
binding for backward-word.)

You could probably get the control-arrow bindings to work as they do on
some other systems if you disabled the system-wide virtual desktop actions,
but few people will do that.

In any event, I'll add them as default bindings and we'll see how it goes.
