I hadn't even seen them.  (The first thing I do in most GUI apps is to
turn off the toolbars, which I never use because they require me to take
my hands off the keyboard, which is slow and distracting.)

Yes, that seems to nearly cover the operations I'm looking for, and now
that I know them as "forward" and "back" commands, I see how to bind them
to keystrokes.  Thank you!

One little frustration, though: the "back" command takes my cursor back to
the line I left (when jumping to a definition), but not to the column I
left.  Instead, it always seems to move the cursor to the first column. 
Can I fix that with a config setting?  If not, might I submit it as a
feature request or bug report?
