thanks! That is exactly what I was looking for.

In case anybody else finds the default behavior annoying, here are
couple of rules that make the CLI behavior more friendly:

# cat /etc/editrc

  bind "^W" ed-delete-prev-word
  bind "\e[1;5D" vi-prev-word
  bind "\e[1;5C" vi-next-word

  bind ^[[5~ ed-search-next-history
  bind ^[[6~ ed-search-prev-history

so far, I was not able to find how to bind ctrl+d to exit.
