X-Debbugs-Cc: Juri Linkov <address@hidden>
Severity: wishlist

While zapping I saw in the news about recent `zap-to-char' changes...
( I mean Emacs news, I don't watch TV! :-| )

We might want to extend that to cover `zap-up-to-char' as well; as many others,
I weardly use the former, but I often use the latter.
