Oh, let me add one last feature request ...

when you click on an item on the Symbol list ... rather than just moving
the cursor to the line item, it would be nice if the newly selected line
were brought to the top 1/3 of the screen. This would make the action much
more immediately available and remove the unnecessary up and down scanning
for where the current line is.
