The following are becoming universal:

> go to next logical topic
< go to prev logical topic
|< go to first topic (top of file)
>| go the last topic (end of file)
>> go to next history
<< go to prev history (ESC, or right mouse as well)

hope this helps,

My mail program, MR/2 ICE, uses snazzy little "looped" up and down buttons
to represent previous/next message, with red X's through them to delete
the current message then move on. Perhaps an adaptation of these would
work (see attached file below, it's a very small GIF)...
