Thanks.  Didn't notice that.

I didn't think that far ahead.  Will add it in a separate commit.

This is actually on purpose.  I had it left aligned at first with trailing dots,
but didn't like it: it still looked too much like a prompt.  Now it looks like
a header, a title, which means that the real stuff will be underneath it.  But
indeed, when the help lines are hidden...

That is good idea.  But it will have to be a "blind" binding: I don't want
to show M-X in every menu and every help text.

Don't like that much.  People shouldn't switch off the help lines when
they don't know nano fully yet, and for those that do know, the "press
something for list" is superfluous.  But true, this is something new,
and the experienced users will not switch the help lines just because
they upgraded to a newer nano.
