I use vi mode for Bash's realine and want to remap the ESC key to double 'ii' 
and ';;' instead of having to remove my hands from the keyboard to tap the ESC 

>From what I see, I would be using something similar to:

$ bind -m vi-command '"ii": <toggle insert/command mode command>'

Second issue, I'm not sure of the command to use for toggling insert/command 
mode. (ie. bind -l)  I think the two commands are vi-insertion-mode and 

I do know double key taps works such as the 'dd' key press sequence to delete a 
line, but only while in vi-movement mode or AKA command mode.

Any ideas?  I'm all Googled-out over this one.
