Improvements to Animated Scrolling

For those who like it, I wanted to discuss possible refinements.

First, I think it will be better when the editor doesn't scroll when the
next find is in the viewport, and this is already filed under:

I was wondering if the double (Shift-)F3 is needed with animated
scrolling. It seems like perhaps the animation provides sufficient
feedback so that the double F3 at end of the last match isn't necessary.
Maybe just put a message at the bottom message strip in the IDE that
says you wrapped and stays until you do anything else. If it the double
F3 can be dispensed with, then animated find actually have one fewer
keystroke than non-animated find, and therefore is more usable. :)

Any other ideas on improving it?

Thanks,
Jon
