docs: reduce the TODO file to a reference to the bug tracker on Savannah

All those items that were marked as DONE are not actually TO-DO items.

Also, most of those things are mentioned in the IMPROVEMENTS file too.
So, add the few that were missing there, and condense/rewrap some.

A list of desired features
--------------------------
* Allow color syntaxes to apply to more than just color, so that we can
e.g. specify a different alternate spell checker depending on which
file type we have open.
For a list of open bugs and requested features see:
* Add support for right-to-left text (RTL).
https://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?group=nano
* Allow setting bookmarks (saved positions, not to be confused with the
mark set via Ctrl-^) at various lines and/or columns in the buffer,
and allow movement between them with a single keystroke?
See https://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?57577.
