If I understand what you're wanting, it sounds like you want an
exdent sort of command.
Vim provides two variants within insert mode:
1) just plain control+D will exdent one 'shiftwidth'
2) typing a zero followed by a control+D will exdent you to the
far left margin
You can read more in the help at
(that last variant is more helpful for C/C++ coding than for
Python, but it's nice to know it's there)
For future reference regarding vim related questions, I highly
recommend the vim mailing list, which you can find at www.vim.org
which is almost pure content (very high S/N ratio) and gives the
python ML a run for its money in terms of fast & accurate responses.
