There maybe a good explanation behind the whole cursor placing
things. As I found 99% of the time IDO is more convenient than the
default behaviors, this one really confuses me. Is it because C-k has
been bound to ido-delete-file-at-head, so if the cursor is placed at
the beginning of the filename, users might accidentally delete files?

But We are paying a price. This will increase the keystrokes to more
than 2 as most files have an extension.
