I really think this needs some discussion.  Okay, if you use nano and
you ever hit ^C or (especially) if you use the -c flag or Meta-c toggle,
you should probably have an opinion about this.  Is the default behavior
(character position relative to the entire file) of any use to you? Or
should the new flag behavior (pos relative to the current line) be the
default and -C should do it the way Pico does? 

The only downside to making the new behavior the default is do we then
invoke the old behavior when pico mode is requested?  But I still think
the discussion has value.
