I find that when I am editing a command in tmux, the M-b and M-f are not bound. I tried the following:

tmux bind-key -t emacs-edit M-b previous-word

But tmux says that's a unknown command. What command should I use when binding such a key?

tmux doesn't have previous/next word editing commands at the moment.
