Right, I think in general you'll be better off to err on the side of

Thanks, Stefan. I guess I'll try doing that for both constants and Symbols, and will handle ':' in Symbol literals like perl-mode does with '$' or '@' (not sure of the reason for the difference between the two, yet).

And easy-kill works fine with it, because the default "thing" it interacts with is actually sexps, not symbols.
