Added v as a keybinding to edit-command-line

taken from [here](
We want pressing v in command mode to take us to an editor (defined by the $VISUAL or $EDITOR variable or vi) to edit the current contents of the command line which (I believe) is a standard feature of bash vi-mode or other readline prompts (see [here]( and [here]( for source).
