At the moment, controls that are designated for large editing jobs *do* 
support Ctrl-A and a lot of other stuff (deriving their capabilities 
from STC, the wxWindows embedded Scintilla), so I'm quite comfortable 
with the current implementation. Documenting current keys would be nice, 
unfortunately wxWindows isn't too verbose about STC's keys...
