This is a possibility, yes, but it completely defeats the nice `C-down' add-on
(when outside of code block), and I guess I won't be the only one with that

Of course, the nicest would be to have both: the current `C-down' for text,
and the "programmatic" behavior when _in code blocks_. Maybe, that's not
possible, though...
