cb vs. cge; compare ce vs. cw

Brennan Vincent
`cw` behaves like `ce`. As explained in motion.txt:

 > Special case: "cw" and "cW" are treated like "ce" and "cE" if the
cursor is on a non-blank.  This is because "cw" is interpreted as
change-word, and a word does not include the following white space.

Similarly, one might expect `cge` to be an alias for `cb`; but it isn't.
Typing `cge` will faithfully backwards up to and include the last
character of the preceding word.

Is this inconsistency a bug/oversight?
