I would really like to see ^X used as the TEXTAREA command-escape-key.

OTOH, a ^E is the natural key to use to move to the EOL (at least for
emacs users, like myself), and hence not a good choice for an escape
key (IMHO).

| Make that "within the displayable beginning of the first long line"

That says it more accurately than I did, and seems to be what I see in
the testing that I've been able to do.

I do find getting a "do you want to wrap" prompt all the time a rather
intrusive annoyance though, and would really appreciate a .cfg option
to disable it.

Also, I've managed to get a core dump in one instance of testing it with
one of my test pages.  I need to gdb it, and see where the problem is,
when I get some time (this weekend, I hope).
