the trouble with the historic editing commands (i.e. your #5 and #8, which as far as i remember, are old csh tricks) is that you don't get to see the command before it runs. i find (read: "have found") this to be very dangerous -- far better to use "real" commandline editing to retrieve the command you want and make the change and run it. if you're any good with your editor of choice (emacs or vi), it really won't take many more keystrokes.
