A couple of things. One, that would be wrong, since you want "vi-bWord" to
map to `rl_vi_bWord' and "vi-bword" to map to `rl_vi_bword' for
consistency if nothing else. Two, how would that `eliminate the confusion'?
The result might be what you want, but it would change the behavior for
everyone who wants the historical behavior, breaking backwards
compatibility and introducing additional issues.

The right fix is to use


since those new bindings were introduced to remove the ambiguity of case-
insensitive matching.
