I never realized it was there.  I remember trying C-y hoping for that, but
it inserts to the end of the line, something I never need.

I would prefer to have bindings similar to normal editing: C-y to yank, but
use M-y to insert the word at point, unless the previous command was yank.
Makes it easier to remember.
