    Log Message:
    UIFC "list" now supports an optional left/right arrow key indicator

    Passing either WIN_LEFTKEY or WIN_RIGHTKEY in the window "mode" argument enables this new indicator in the upper right of "list" windows. These indicator arrows are mouse-clickable too (translate to the left and right arrow keys).

    We had defined uses for all 32 available WIN_* mode bits, so I extended the win mode type from 32 to 64 bits (should this now be called uifc64.c?) :-)

    Anyway, it'll be easier to add more WIN_* mode flags as needed later, but I do wonder about JavaScript support (not so great for > 31-bit integers).

    I haven't used Lynx all that much, or at least, not in a long long time. How is its navigation style cool?

    Right arrow act as Enter. When you move to right you will enter to the selected item. Left arrow act as ESC and go back

    You can activate it on Midnight Commander Options->Panels->Lynx Style Navigation to see how to this work.

    That would make more sense if the submenus opened to the right in a sort of column navigation, leaving the previous menu (left column) on the screen. This doesn't seem like an intuitive UI for the way Sync's curses menus display to the user.

    Doesn't really hurt anything, I guess. But my rule of thumb is that if a UI needs documentation for someone to know how a feature works, then it's probably a bad UI. But if it helps power users, then whatever.

    I don't see how that method would work with the UIFC use of those keys already. --
