If you try it in Vim you will notice that the first char of the next word is
never being included in the selection when you press "vw". Unless this is
impossible to implement, I don't think it is a desired operation, and there
is no point to use "viw" when "vw" can do the same thing (why type one more

This is not a bug but intended. 'v' enables visual mode, 'w' moves the
cursor to the beginning of the next word. If you want to select the
current word only, use 'viw' or 've'. Btw, this is the same behavior
as vim's.
