Patch to change behavior of Enter key in summaryview

We have discussed this on IRC with Paul, and although we came to a conclusion
that this should be controlled by a preference option, after looking at the
code, I now have a different opinion.

What I propose is:
If messageview is visible (controlled by V key by default), Enter should
display selected message in it.
If messageview is not visible, Enter should leave it hidden, and open selected
message in a new window.

My reasoning is that this aligns better with the whole idea of a hidden
messageview, just like the reporter says. On the other hand, this will change
currently expected behavior. The currently expected behavior is buggy, in my

The patch which does this is attached, it should be no problem to extend it
with a new preference option, but I think it is unnecessary.
