By which I think he means: given a keyset of tree objects, one of which is
currently displayed in the front window, it would be nice if there was an
easy way to call up the next (or previous) object for display in the same
window.  

This would be especially useful on small screens.  I don't know what kind of
control should be used to invoke this.  A button I guess.  Special key
combinations are out of the question?  Hmm, I guess the button would have to
be in the Keyset window rather than the tree window, if I assume correctly
that a tree window doesn't even know whether it came from a keyset or not.
This isn't so great.
