Consider the following text, where | indicates caret:
Now if I hit alt+backspace to delete the word "bar", I get:
That's not good. It means I have to enter the space again. It doesn't really make sense for any kind of use case, I think. There are all sorts of situations (eg., arithmetic expressions like foo + bar + baz) where you'd like to position the caret at the end of a word and delete the word to replace it with something else.
I could use super+D to expand the selection + delete, but that works only if the caret is on a word, not something more complex like a quoted string.
