does "real" vi do this?  i tried it in vim, and i get a "recursive map"
error, though maybe there's config to get around that.

the only tricky part i can think of is, what do you do if the map
expands to more than one character.  :map works naturally in 'i' and 'R' modes
because those are multi-character inserts.  with 'r', how would you
restrict it to single character replacement?
