dictionary patch idea/request

Hi. Thanks for the awesome work on JBPatch. I love the dictionary patch.

Here's two ideas/requests, if anyone has the time and inclination:

1) In the dictionary patch / On the dictionary card, turn the dictionary title into a link to open the dictionary's index with the current selection. This would make looking up words that aren't in the index much easier.

2) In 5.3.2, chinese and japanese books have little arrows to move the selection endpoints around (but not periodicals - woops). It would be awesome to have this on all the time, for all languages and documents.

I've looked around the javascript and plain text parts of the system for a way to do (2); I think it's in java.

Obfuscated java is beyond my reach right now. My thanks to anyone feels like tinkering with this. Cheers.
