Optional "return to top" link next to section editing links
Closed, DeclinedPublic

Why doesn't exist something like a [top]-button? I really miss that. If a page
is 'long', you've the table of contents to jump to a point on the page, but
nothing to jump back... So you must scroll back to top.

It would be nice if you could implement a [top] link next to each section
editing button. Perfect would be, if you can choose via user preference if you
want that link or not. So it's optional to have the button.

In most browsers, the "home" on your keyboard will do this.

I know laptop keyboards are cut down, but not having a Home key is ridiculous.

Is it possible that the "return to top" appears only if the page has for example
a table of contents (means that the lemma isn't a stub)?
