Thanks for the condescension and lack of understanding my problem, I will
refrain from replying to anymore of your snide and unhelpful emails. Just to
clarify:  I understand my problem just fine, it is a solution to the eternity of
up-arrows you mention above, and I would like to find an implementation in
emacs.  And I have wasted more time with you than I have already, so I will
refrain from randomly browsing the documentation as you so helpfully suggest.
