Hmm, maybe what we want is not the ability to edit the name of a lookup,
but instead to type in the name of a lookup code - either a new one (added
automatically) or an existing one (with autocompletions shown so that you
can what's happening). Changing the name of an existing code isn't
something you would do often!
This is actually how I want entering animation names to work. (I've been
meaning to write an email about animation names, because I'm undecided
about them and it's been holding me up)
So if I implement that editing interface for animation names, it could be
reused for lookup codes. They are a bit different though; I'm not going to
allow duplicate or empty animation names.

That doesn't actually happen every time, but only the last thing you did
was to edit the name of a lookup code. But I'll change it so that backspace
goes back to operating on the ID instead of the lookup whenever you
deselect the lookup code menu item, instead of using a static variable.
