    John's suggestion of controlling ups via the keyboard is probably a good
    idea. There are several approaches. Currently the command line has keyboard
    focus unless one is editing in the display or output windows. Perhaps if
    the mouse is over the central target region (next, step etc), keyboard
    input could be processed by those buttons. Alternatively it could be anywhere
    outside the typing line, but this would be more restrictive - it's sometimes
    nice to select a string in the display or output windows and 
    paste it into the typing line for a search for instance, without having
    to move the mouse there. Not sure if the proposed behaviour would best be fixed,
    controlled by a widget, typing line command, or X resource. 
    As an aside, I noticed that the old command line mode has been broken for 
    some time ( ups ups -a ups -nowindow -replay -), though this would be 
    easy to fix. It's not really relevent to this though.
