Thanks. I will do it next time.

Why would anyone want to waste anytime, especially around a project?
Or even think of affording such disdain-able thing.

So, we want to warn our users; in similar fashion to when there is
something un-interpretable in ~/.nanorc, like "bin ^A help main"
instead of "bind ^A help main"? Code for that would go in src/rcfile.c
somewhere in if--else if-else statement where we print ""Command
\"%s\" not understood" or (better?) near when we print "Sorry,
keystroke \"%s\" may not be rebound". Probably, it could be better if
we display on statusbar rather than terminal.
