WRITE is even more interesting: it has ^F as a toggle between
insert and writeover; also ^G which opens a hole in the text
(everything to the right of the cursor drops down a line to stay
there until you hit ^G again to close it up).
While in ^F mode, you have all the usual commands.
You can also get to ^F mode automagically; just type
past the end of a line and you're in it (so you cannot write
over the line below unless you wanted to).
