In the absence of anything more urgent, as far as I know, this seems to
be the next logical project.

Ted, Andrew, any objections?  I can  easily shift to another project if
you prefer.

Can't do this :(  ZigZag doesn't know if you  want to press just 'M' to mark
one cell, then move left, or you want to press 'M' then "left" to mark half
the rank.  See?  How about:

m - Mark current cell
M + direction - Mark half-rank
Alt-M - Mark whole rank

This is possible, but a -pain- to implement.  I can do it though :)
