Backspace Preview Follow
One of the tricky parts (for me, anyway) of getting used to MPS's style of editing is the backspace key; namely, in knowing exactly what it's going to delete.
To help with this, what about introducing a visual cue that shows what the backspace key will remove?
Here are some samples of how it might look at different carat positions.

Unfrotunately, if we take a look at current MPS' architecture such a change will be hard to implement. In editor language, we have ability to override what happens on deletes by writing code which will handle it. Addition of backspace prediction will lead to large refactoring which isn't feasible now since we are very close to release of version 1.0 of MPS.
Thank you for your reply. It is good news that MPS 1.0 is close to release, though!
