Hurmf... who says I use ^B less than ^A ... wait, I know, have it act
like before, but, when in the minibuffer, have a special unlocker key
sequence one could type in case one felt the need to go over into the
prompt...  and even the modeline.  OK, i will turn it off as Eli
instructs.

True, if these new features weren't foisted upon us, we would never
learn about them, as the NEWS file doesn't necessarily have lasting
impressions on us old dogs.

Wait a second,

wait a second, you got a lot more explaining to do, Mr. Help System,
before I have confidence to tinker with this.  Indeed the special
setting Eli mentioned isn't even mentioned here.  Perhaps I'm supposed
to look elsewhere, but the answers should all be here.

Help> You can customize this variable.

Perhaps the answer lies here, but you know what?  I hate using that
customization auto-system jazz... I just want to edit my .emacs by
hand and not have to go into some auto quiz soda pop push button
machine that I don't want to learn and then it goes writing things I
don't understand into my .emacs.
