I like interactively working in a REPL, so I was a bit confused when firing up Node's
node process and seeing that all the readline shortcuts I usually use worked as normal, except yanking with Ctrl-Y. I even tried wrapping the node process with
rlwap to get "readline superpowers", but I didn't see any difference.
Is there a known reason why Ctrl-Y yanking doesn't work in
Alt-F, Alt-B, Alt-Backspace, Ctrl-F, Ctrl-B and Ctrl-K all work as expected.
