Move lines Up or Down in RDi/LPEX

RDi has a setting to move a line up or down (using ALT + UP / ALT + DOWN) that does not work in the LPEX Editor. Can we please enable that?

Use Case:

Rather than copying a line and pasting it elsewhere in your code - Hitting ALT + DOWN will move the all code on the line that your cursor is currently on down one line.

    Although the theme of this request is consistent with our business strategy, it is not committed to the release that is currently under development.

    This is currently doable by putting M (or MM for start and end of multiple lines) and an A (or B) in the line number area of the code. This is similar to how SEU does it on the green screen. There is also a D/DD for delete and C/CC for copying.
