Alias global u enter-user-mode

I rely a lot on user-modes in my workflow. But the mode you have, the more it is to find them a quick access key.

So, for the one I use only once in a while, I found that the following alias helps a lot:

alias global u enter-user-mode

This way a simple :u<space> the autocompleter kicks in and all the user-modes are easily available.

Kakoune offers a few 1 letter aliases by default (w, q, e, b…) but adding other ones is handy for quick access.

I’ve started to use map global normal <c-u> ': enter-user-mode<space>', so it throws me to mode selecting immidiately. Saves some keys.
