[Nano-devel] proposal to make word jumping work in nano tiny

When nano is configured with --enable-tiny, it "calls" every possible
--disable-feature flag, from --disable-browser to --disable-tabcomp,
including --disable-color, --disable-help and --disable-nanorc.

That makes nano quite a bit smaller.  But... --enable-tiny also disables
things for  which there are no --disable flags: case-sensitive searches,
the toggles, the Search Again command (M-W), and word jumping.  In my
opinion, the latter two really are needed for basic editing.

So I propose to make Ctrl+Left and Ctrl+Right work also when nano
is configured with --enable-tiny.  And while at it, also Ctrl+Up
and Ctrl+Down, because it doesn't cost much code, and the Search
Again command, and case-sensitive and backward searches.

Any objections to this?  Or wishes for other things to be included
in tiny too?
