Good suggestions.

I'm not getting this.  Is anyone else having this problem?

Scrolling through an enormous menu is annoying, but the finished  
utility will also include a positions history list of about 25  
entries.  In practice, you will be using the positions history list  
most of the time and only occasionally access the full definitions list.

The positions history list will  be persistent.

MCL, of course, displayed definitions in a dialog.  For short and  
average length files, a popup menu is better, but for really large  
files maybe a dialog would be good.
