I'm using the following clumsy but working solution.
Suggestions are welcome.

# Delete range of characters: from the first after last slash to EOL
# If the range is empty, remove '/' and invokes itself again
function clear-until-slash () {
 local x0=$CURSOR
 zle -U /
 zle vi-find-prev-char-skip
 local x1=$CURSOR
 [ $x1 -eq 0 ] && { zle beep; return; }
 if [ $x0 -eq $x1 ]; then
  zle backward-delete-char

zle -N clear-until-slash
bindkey "\ew" clear-until-slash

Emacs is a nice OS - but it lacks a good text editor.
That's why I am using Vim.
