Hi all,

Currently nano's help lines start with these three columns:

^G Get Help         ^O WriteOut         ^R Read File
^X Exit             ^J Justify          ^W Where Is

And after a ^R ^T:

^G Get Help         ^W Where Is         ^V Next Page
^X Exit             ^Y Prev Page        M-W WhereIs Next

Here the "Prev Page" and "Next Page" are not together,
nor are ^W and M-W, whereas both pairs are clearly related.
Also in the main screen ^O and ^R are not in the same
column, although clearly related.  In the rest of nano's
help lines all related pairs are always (as far as possible)
in the same column.  Attached patch does this also for
^O and ^R, ^W and M-W, and ^Y and ^V, resulting in:

^G Get Help         ^O WriteOut         ^W Where Is
^X Exit             ^R Read File        ^J Justify

^G Get Help         ^W Where Is         ^Y Prev Page
^X Exit             M-W WhereIs Next    ^V Next Page

Seems totally sane -- only question for me is why is WriteOut still OneWord?
