I thought about it as an extension of transpose-words, which I use
instead of Alt-b pressed once. Now I see transpose-words can be used
to e.g. revert "mv" command by doing opposite rename (not that I
didn't use it that way). Well, I always preferred transposing than
Alt-b-jumping and cursor keys. Careful positioning with Alt-b and
cursor keys, and then Ctrl-E to continue at the end, I don't like it.

I'm not fully following this, maybe an example? Seems sophisticated, though.
