What do you mean? Are you asserting that because it has 'word' in the
name, it should stop at non-alphanumeric characters?

In bash, the one with metachar is called as 'backward-kill-word', and the one with space is called 'unix-word-rubout'. So presently we need only backward-kill-word.

I'm not clear. Which actions should I duplicate? What should the names
be for the ones that stop at whitespace and the ones that stop on any
non-alphanumeric character?
