Hmm.  I hadn't thought of that.  :)  Don't know.  Maybe a message
on the status bar?

Hm, no.  I want to reserve the Tools menu for operations that affect
the whole buffer (or the marked region when something is marked), and
not use it for smaller things.

The go-to-line function will stay in the Search menu because it's nice
to be able to switch between Searching and Jumping.  Since we're leaving
Pico behind, we could remove the paragraph-jumping functions from the
Search menu altogether (since they are available directly in main), or
we could put them in the Go-to-line menu.

The latter makes the most sense to me: remove ^W, ^O, ^Y, and ^V from
the Search menu and have them in the Go-to menu instead -- ^Y and ^V
are already there and they are out of place in the Search menu.
