crecord: add an event that scrolls the selected line to the top of the screen

Using ctrl-l for this purpose seems to be a fairly widely used practice,
presumably following emacs. This doesn't scroll the selected line all
the way to the top of the window, instead it leaves a 3 line buffer for
context. Use curses.unctrl() to resolve keypressed to '^L' to avoid
hard-coding hexadecimal key codes.
