    I think it would be good to include Icicles in Emacs.
    Clearly, we wouldn't want to enable it by default since it changes the
    behavior too much for many people's tastes, but just like iswitchb and ido
    I think it's a valuable extension.

It sounds like Icicles contains many good features that should be installed.
Perhaps all of them.  But we should not keep them as a bundle simply because
they are offered to us as a bundle.  We should separate them if they make
more sense separately, and keep them unified if they make more sense unified.

At least one should be implemented differently: multi-commands.
I explained how it is possible to simplify this tremendously
if you don't insist on doing the work at the Lisp level.

I don't know all the features in Icicles.  Perhaps other such
simplifications are possible, or perhaps not.  Someone needs to check.
