You're complaining about the quality of the changes I make?
You want to take over?  You want to be maintainer of nano?
Please, go ahead.

Very minor breakage: the <Bsp> key not scrolling backward any more,
something probably no one uses.  I added it a while ago just for
some "compatibility" with the 'info' reader.

It breaks nothing; it just fails to add support for them.  Oversights.
Those escape sequences are not on my radar.

I haven't done any of the complex stuff ever.  I don't have the stamina
for that.

Yes, I don't absolutely need those things added or fixed, because
I have learned to work around them.  But I haven't gotten to them,
because they demand a too large investment of time and focus.
