#61 Improve keyboard interaction in HyperSearch Results


This patch will improve some keyboard interaction in
the [HyperSearch Results] tree.

* Two flavors [Space], [Enter] to open the node.
Pressing [Space] opens the selected node without
changing the focus. (The focus remains on the
[HyperSearch Results] tree.) Pressing [Enter] opens
the selected node and set the focus to the textArea.
Without this patch, the latter requires 3 strokes

* Enable [Delete] key to remove the node.
Without this patch, removing nodes can be done only
with mouse (context menu). I also implemented
adjusting the selection on removal so that repeating
some removals behave naturally.

I found the two flavors to open buffers in the macro
Files/Buffer_Switcher.bsh. I like this interface very
much. I would like to see this interface in all tree
or list interface about buffers in jEdit. ErrorList,
ProjectViewer and Sidekick are in mind. If you like
this patch, I'll try to implement this interface for
these plugins.
