[ANN] Lysosome 1.0 -- A tiny caret movement plugin

Lysosome - A tiny caret movement plugin
http://www.intellij.org/twiki/bin/view/Main/LysosomePlugin

Lysosome provides an easy way to jump to the start or the end of a selection. This is a tiny bit of caret movement behaviour which I'm used to in other editors. Inside a selection in the editor press the left cursor key to jump to the start of a selection and unselect the text. Press the right cursor key to jump to the end of the selection and unselect the text.

This plugin emulates behaviour found in other editors like Microsoft Wordpad or Word. Tested with Intellij IDEA builds #2235 and #3144 and should work with any build in between.

Small but nice. Hopefully future versions of Idea will make this the
default.

Very nice. In combination with Ctrl-W, you get an easy jump-out-of-scope, which is very very nice. Thanks, Bas.
