"This module allows for special keybindings that only take effect
while the point is in a region of input text. By default, it binds
C-a to move to the beginning of the input text (rather than just the
beginning of the line), and C-p and C-n to move through the input
history, C-u kills the current input text, etc. It also, if
`eshell-confine-point-to-input' is non-nil, does not allow certain
commands to cause the point to leave the input area, such as
`backward-word', `previous-line', etc. This module intends to mimic
the behavior of normal shells while the user editing new input text."

"*If non-nil, do not allow the point to leave the current input.
This is more difficult to do nicely in Emacs than one might think.
Basically, the `point-left' attribute is added to the input text, and
a function is placed on that hook to take the point back to
`eshell-last-output-end' every time the user tries to move away. But
since there are many cases in which the point _ought_ to move away
\(for programmatic reasons), the variable
`eshell-cannot-leave-input-list' defines commands which are affected
from this rule. However, this list is by no means as complete as it
probably should be, so basically all one can hope for is that other
people will left the point alone in the Eshell buffer. Sigh."
