Yes, it's rare, but very nice when data is in columns and you need to
edit one, or sometimes when you duplicate a print statement, and want
to overwrite the leading part, but keep the padding so that the
trailing stuff is at the same position (a tad like columns, and a tad
like the comment example).
Autocomplete should overwrite while in overwrite mode (and so should
paste really, though I wasn't sure initially) -- that said, I can't
give any ETA on these things, but I may look at it later today.
