M-X Describe Flavor

    In Symbolics 3600 Zwei in Release 6.0, IP-TCP 29.0, AISite 9.2,
    microcode TMC5-MIC 319, on Lisp Machine John Lennon:

    Since, when pointing to a flavor name, [Left] is Edit Flavor definition
    and [Right] is a menu of edit and Describe, How about making middle be

That's a nice idea, but it turns out that the (ancient) existing
mechanism for defining typeout-item mouse-sensitivity has no provision
for assigning anything to the middle key.  I'll enter that as a
suggested improvement.  

I also found that commands like m-X Describe Flavor, that create
mouse-sensitive typeout, are essentially useless for all but the last
screenful, if they run long.  This is because the *MORE* processing
swallows the mouse click if the window is at a more-break.  I'll report
that too.

Thanks for pointing this out.
