Keep up the good work :)

On a related note: was wondering if there could be a way for
minibuffer to auto-expand to several lines, if the message it wants to
display is > 1 line.

i do use mini-rsz, but that does not automatically resize for large

yeah, i know it is recommended that messages not be > 1 line in the
first place, but i think it would be cool if mini-rsz allowed one to
display >1 line message..

39:22 EMACS has  now revealed the best of  scriptures, a documentation
uniform in  style proclaiming promises  and warnings.  Those  who fear
their EMACS are filled with awe  as they listen to its revelations, so
that their hearts soften at the remembrance of EMACS.  Such is EMACS's
guidance: He bestows  it on whom He will.  But  he whom EMACS misleads
shall have none to guide him.
