 [nano-devel] [patch] menus: don't show ^s and ^q in the help lines
 in the tiny version

On small terminals (80 columns or so), ^S and ^Q would be in
the last position of the help lines.  But some terminals might
intercept ^S and stop all output (until ^Q is pressed), which
could be unexpected and frustrating.  So, rearrange things for
the tiny version so that ^S appears only on very wide terminals.

Also, having two keystrokes for saving the current buffer
(^O and ^S) in the two help lines is wasteful, more so as
in the tiny version there are no ^G help texts.

So, show the more useful M-Q and M-W instead.
