I'm very much a fan of vim hotkeys! But while I've tried set -o vi before, for some reason it felt a bit off for me.

I do like what Peter Benjamin suggested, which is to hit Ctrl+X -> Ctrl+E to send your current command to a real vim buffer for editing. That way I get a full vim experience in the editing environment I'm used to, and only when I explicitly request it.

Anyhow, it's great that both options exist. More choice means everyone's free to pick what suits their workflow!
