If no one objects, I am going to take those two keys.  M-B will change
to toggling "search Backwards / forwards", and M-F will be reserved for
toggling "spellcheck From cursor / whole file".

But then... personally I would prefer to have a search-next-forward and
a search-next-backward function instead of a single search function with
a toggle.  Then I could bind M-W to find-next-forward, and M-B to find-
-next-backward -- although, that is a bit unintuitive, keypositionwise,
so I would probably bind find-next-forward to M-N.

Which brings us to M-N, the No-convert toggle.  Is it needed in the main
menu?  And why is it not present in the Read File menu?  Any objections
against removing it from the first and adding it to the second?
