I got some help investigating via a Twitter thread on this topic:

Here's more context: that combination of keys seems to put readline into vi mode, though it only does so in Python and not inside my system shell.

If I type start to type a line of code (say "2+2") and hit Escape and then type vi commands like 0 or $, the cursor will navigate to the beginning/end of the line as expected in vi mode.

Ctrl-Alt-L clears the screen and typing "Ctrl-A e" enters back into Emacs readline mode.

I can understand how "Ctrl-A v" would cause the Python REPL to enter vi mode, but I don't understand why "Ctrl-C Escape Enter" would cause that.
