Keys are generally in bindings.c, entry.c, and fselect.c. I will commit a
fix that allows you to set `gui.command_entry.entry_text` while the curses
command entry is open so you can implement your "delete back word" in pure
Lua, e.g.:

    keys.lua_command = {
      ['cw'] = function()
        local gui_ce = gui.command_entry
        gui_ce.entry_text = gui_ce.entry_text:match('^(.-)[%w_]+$')
