It would be nice if there was a way to jump between matching control and end
statements. For example, in Matlab if clicking on an "if" and the matching
"end" is out of view, a popup at the bottom of the screen will show up with
the matching end line that can be clicked and then jump to that line in the
document. Clicking on and "end" lets you click on the matching "if" popup to
jump to it. 

I think another, perhaps better way to jump between the control statements
(if, for, while, etc) and matching end statements is to allow a keyboard
command to jump to the matching statement, just like Ctl-m allows jumping to
the matching bracket in octave. I would even use Ctl-m for both jumping
between matching brackets and matching control/end statements. This would
allow convenient jumping to related places in the code. (This would be better
than matlab because you could jump even if both statements are visible on the
