Hello all,

I'd like your opinion on a couple of possible new features for nano.
All of them have working patches lying around on Savannah or on the
mailing list, so if you wish, you can try the features out.  Here goes:

a)  Delete a word leftward / delete a word rightward.

b)  Spell check from the current cursor position instead of the whole file.

c)  Find next occurrence backward / find next occurrence forward.
(So you don't have to toggle the search direction with ^W M-B first.)

d)  Save the current file without any prompting (if it has a name).

e)  An option to consider underscores to be part of a word.

f)  An option to save a file by default in Unix format.

The first four would be added as bindable functions without having
any binding by default.  Users who do not read the nanorc man page
nor the ^G help text would not become aware of the existence of these

The relevant bugs or messages that contain the patch:

What do you think?  Which ones would you really like to have?
