Unix Keyboard Shortcuts for Vim

Sadly Vim only implements a few Unix-style shortcuts, and only in insert mode: ^W, ^H, ^U.

Any expert in Vim configuration arcana is welcome to submit configuration details to enable the missing shortcuts for insert mode and all shortcuts for command mode.

Here are some config lines contributed by Yoshi Rokuko that add ^A and ^E to input mode and command mode:

imap <C-e> <esc>$i<right>
imap <C-a> <esc>0i
map <C-e> <esc>$<right>
map <C-a> <esc>0
