No, I meant that RET should choose the currently-selected alternative
and exit the selection mode; I didn't say that it inserts the selection
because the selection is already inserted in the buffer, even while
selection mode is still active.  This is does what Dan wants, although
he wants to do it in even fewer keystrokes...

BTW, in isearch, RET leaves the cursor on the last string matched, as
opposed to ^G, which aborts the search, and goes back to the beginning.
