* There's a footgun in inputrc processing.
        # Footgun!
        # Control-y: do-lowercase-version # WEDGES GOOD!

        # Not a footgun.
        # Probably because do-uppercase-version isn't actually recognized.
        # Control-Y: do-lowercase-version
        # Control-y: do-uppercase-version

        Put the "WEDGES GOOD!" line above into your ~/.inputrc.
        C-x C-r
        echo $$
        Go kill $$ from some other terminal.
