Cool. BTW we had sci_target_start, sci_target_end already but perhaps
they're not clearly named, I might rename them to your versions.

I added a 'Reflow lines/paragraph' Format keybinding as discussed in

you still want a 'Join lines' command perhaps we could add it, I just
haven't thought how it would be useful yet.
