Can be.  But since it's about a year now since we called a freeze and I see
no sign of getting to the pretest stage, I figure I don't understand enough
what "feature freeze" means: I just propose changes and I'll let someone
else decide whether they should be installed.
I think it's The Right Way to solve the problem, so that's what I use in my
local code, but if someone wants to write a "quick&safe" fix instead and use
that instead I see no problem with it.  I'm still interested to know whether
I'm right or not in thinking that my fix is The Right Way.

Let's see:

      (insert (with-current-buffer foo
                (buffer-substring (point)
                                    (call-interactively 'self-insert-command)

Yes, it's silly,
