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

Yes, quite different from the original problem statement, and more 
reflective of my own needs as well.

Right now I make liberal use of the "Lookup Definition" item in the 
context menu, but that only goes one way.

I once considered making a static analysis tool that would provide a 
list of handlers with specific line numbers for a flow of execution.

Not surprisingly, I also decided the time it would take to do that would 
exceed the time it would save me. :)
