Ctrl-m/Ctrl-Shift-m to navigate/select SQL statements

You can already use ctrl-m/ctrl-shift-m to jump between (or highlight) code blocks with the standard block identifiers like If/EndIf. It would be very good if the editor treated "exec sql" and ";" as block identifiers too.

Use Case:

Copying SQL from a SQLRPGLE member happens all the time, especially when troubleshooting a complex statement. If ctrl-m at the top of the SQL statement (or Exec SQL) highlighted everything until the next semi-colon, the process of copying the statement would be much faster and less prone to mistakes.
