Note: for Do it, Senders of it, etc., a null selection will be expanded to a word or to the current line in an attempt to do what you want. Also note that Senders/Implementors of it will find the outermost keyword selector in a large selection, as when you have selected a bracketed expression or an entire line. Finally note that the same cmd-m and cmd-n (and cmd-v for versions) work in the message pane of most browsers.
