 May I suggest new functionnalities to improve interactivity of dialog?

For instance, when dialog has to present a very long check list, it would
be nice to have some short keys (or accessibility keys)... for instance:
- press [J]: find and Jump to an item in the list

typing a letter makes dialog jump to the first match, then to the second, etc.

Perhaps function-keys could be assigned for additional features...

- press [O]: set all to On
- press [F]: set all to oFF
- press [R]: Revert selection
- press [U]: Undo last selection
- etc.

This could be implemented outside dialog, in a shell script arround dialog
(a sub-menu called by the extra-button), however it would be more convenient
if it was provided by dialog itself, isn't it ?
