Ok, you have convinced me -- 1% inconvenience is too much :-)

I have modified ido to place the cursor at the start of the input when
a default item is present (which ffap provides).

I've also made C-a, C-e, C-b, and C-k work more intelligently when the
cursor is not at the end of the input -- e.g. C-k delete the rest of
the input, and C-e moves to the end of the input.

C-a normally toggles the "ignore" list processing ... and that is a
very important binding (C-a = show all).  So C-a cannot be used
directly to move to the beginning of input, but I changed it so that
it moves to the beginning of the input if the cursor is _not_ at the
end of the input ... so use C-b C-a to move cursor to the start of
