The problem with this is that by not calling the SSM(sci, SCI_GOTOPOS,
(uptr_t) pos, 0); you don't schedule an updateUI and you then don't get the
associated notifications.  I don't know what impacts that might have,
especially as plugins can depend on those notifications.

I would be *very* wary changing the semantics of such low level functions
without great care, checking where they are used and all the side effects,
such as the notification callbacks.
