Well, I'm curious how one manages when one's window on
the "world" is just forty or eighty characters wide.

So, with the routing keys you have an extra way of copying
and pasting text.  What others use the mouse for, and what
in nano we have the mark for (M-A), you can accomplish with
the routing keys (plus some other buttons).  Can you also make
a selection across multiple lines (just like with the mark)?
Or only within one line?

Great.  Please try the attached patch.  If things work as you
would like, then I'll add an option 'showcursor' that enables
this functionality only when set.

A 701?  It must be seven or eight years old.  And it is still working?
