OK; `superword-mode' is back to `forward-symbol' and I moved the
`forward-whitespace', `forward-symbol', and `forward-same-syntax'
commands to subr.el (reasoning that they are closely related, have no
external dependencies, and are very useful generally).

If that was not OK, please adjust accordingly.
