TAB is causing BloatWare! :)

Wow... this one's gotten to be a biggie! And the more I read it, the more I like the idea of getting to that rightmost period in the filename.

What about this? (might as well throw a new one in here since this feature is already suffering from serious bloating :-P)

Using Ctrl-Right Arrow and Ctrl-Left Arrow would take you to all the periods/spaces in the filename - just like it does in most windows apps.

And Ctrl-End could delete from the current position to the end of the name (including the character you're on), and Ctrl-Home delete to the beginning of the name (NOT including the character you're on).

Maybe instead of using comma and period, ALT-Right arrow once would move you on TOP of the rightmost period and you'd just have to press the right arrow key once more to get to the next position. The arrow keys are just more "navigational", but my suggestions require extra keys to be pressed, so I don't know if it'll be a hit amongst the hardcore Ztree users out there.

At any rate, I'd be happy if there were just ONE new function for now, to get to that rightmost period in the filename (on top of it in insert mode, that is). But I'm glad this discussion is happening... very interesting stuff. I'll bet Kim had no clue what a hot topic this would be!
