The --backup option can be flipped both in the ^O and the main menu, and the --multibuffer option can be flipped both in the ^R and the main menu, but the --noconvert option can only be flipped in the main menu. This is inconsistent.

In my opinion, it is more important that an option can be flipped in the menu where it is relevant. And moving the noconvert toggle from the main menu to the ^R menu has the pleasant side effect of freeing a keystroke in the editor.

(But when moving the noconvert toggle, then, for consistency, also the backup and multibuffer toggles should be removed from the main menu and should be available only in the menus where they are relevant. This will free two more keystrokes, and will reduce the number of bindable functions by two, which is nice, because (now that I think about it) it is silly to have two pairs of bindable functions that do basically the same, just in different menus.)
