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

Well, I don't usually jump only once. If I do, I just use the built-in 
trick I described. But what I usually need to do is follow script flow 
from one handler to the one that called it, to the one that called that, 
the back to the second one until I see another reference, then jump to 
that one, see what it does, then back to the first one, then on to 
another one.

How many split windows would that take?
