Nick W. et al.--
I couldn't agree more. More wishlist items: Not only should a
Shift-click in the Review window select all commands in between the
two anchors, but a series of Ctrl-clicks should enable you to select
an arbitrary list of commands, and a right-click on any selected
command should bring up a menu that offers "Save command(s) to file" &
"Copy command(s) to clipboard" & "Run command(s) now" in addition to
the existing options that operate on the entire contents of the
window.

While you are looking hard at this: one thing I have always wanted is
the ability to select a range of commands in the review window, and
re-run them all in sequence.  (In many Windows settings, one could
expect to select the first command, then click on the last command
while holding the shift key, in order to select the range.)
