There were some suggestions, but none of them are perfect.  Paul Fox's
suggestion of "if pick seq | grep -q N" is probably the closest, but
that's not perfect either (if you're looking at message 5, then that would
match any message that contains a 5 in the message number).

That would be useful, I think.  Patches would be welcome.
