I have assumed the result directly following a request is the result of
that request (in other words, you cannot have request made in between).

I have implemented something slightly different. By looking a log at
level 10 you can press `r` to get a list of all requests detected in a
new window.

- This window is automatically selected, you can close it
  with `q`.
- By pressing RET it will cycle between the start and end of the
  current line request in the log window.
- By navigating with `n` and `p` it will jump to the start of the
  request in the log window.

The focus is kept on this request window for all commands, again, press
`q` to close it and go back to the log window.

Tell me what you think.
