Thank you very much for your answers. The FAQ just mentions that  
"Using AppleScript it is easy to implement Command-E and Command- 
Return like functionality." I searched a bit around (Google, hoping  
that it indexes the archives of the mailing list also) for  
AppleScripts that would do this, because I don't think I am capable  
of writing one, but to no avail. Does anybody have such an  
AppleScript available? Would it be possible to add it directly to the  
(NB: because the archives are not searchable I did not really dug  
through all of it. If you remember approximately the date of a thread  
about this just give me the date)
