Wouldn't it be nice to have a "back/forward" button in script editor?

I've wanted this for years. There is half a way to do it, but it's very 
limited. Right click on a handler name in calling handler and choose "go to 
definition". It will scroll to the handler in the script or open a new 
script tab if necessary. The orginal start position in the handler list 
remains hilited so you can find it again easily.

But it's far from perfect. If you click anywhere in the new handler, the 
list selection changes. And it only works for one hop. But even that much 
is useful for a quick check on what a particular handler does.
