I believe this is the entry in the change log describing the change, although
I'm unable to find Carlos' original report in the archives:

| lib/readline/vi_mode.c
|        - rl_vi_unix_word_rubout: new function, implements ^W as Posix 
specifies
|          it for vi mode, using whitespace and punctuation characters as word
|          boundaries. Prompted by question from Carlos Pita
