Side-by-side editing fails if Preview significantly longer than source; needs smart, vertical locking!

Improved side-by-side Wiki page editing by making the editor side or the preview side scrollable (whichever is taller)
The side-by-side editing is rendered useless, if the Preview is significantly longer (due to large text, tables and inline images) than the source code. You might end up in a situation where the related source code to what you currently see in the Preview is 1 or 2 pages up the screen and it is currently impossible to see source code and related Preview together at once. This is a serious issue in my opinion.
You can make a simple test by positioning a few large images using [[Image(XYZ.jpg)]] underneath each other: The source code only takes a few lines, whereas the last image might by two screens down the window scroll bar.
A solution should look like this: The preview get dynamically positioned in such a way, that it (optionally) aligns vertically with the cursor position in the source code window, so that one really sees what one's editing.
