Credited and committed, except for:

^R^X and ^W^T should both behave the same way, ^C completely cancels the 
operation in progress.  I put it in the TODO for 1.4 that the 
subfunction key within the subfunction should return it to the parent 
function the way you have it here, but this is out of the scope of 1.2.  

What should probably happen in 1.3 is now that we have hacked all this
extra functionality on top of the old statusq code, statusq and
nanogetstr should be completely rewritten so we don't have to have so
much logic in the calling functions, e.g. backupstrings and history 
should be handled in statusq, blah blah.  :)
