Would it be an option to use ensureCursorVisible() and make it scroll a few extra lines (whether you go up or down)? For example, when you press ctrl-[ to go to the beginning of the block, I often have to scroll a little bit to see the actual function, whlle, if or whatever the opening { belongs to. Same when searching. When a next match is found, it would be better to have a few extra lines, and not the bare minimum (being the last line). 

I might actually try to implement it. First task, get a working code checkout :)
