Dunno. Something I'm not already trying to use for something else like
entering new lines. ;-) I'm not sure I understand the binding for
last-sexp-toggle-display fits into things--it doesn't *seem* to be
part of the major mode (i.e. it's not listed as a binding when I type
C-h m) so I'm not sure what conventions it's supposed to be following.
Maybe ESC RET on the pattern of ESC TAB which the major mode already

Anyway, I noticed this problem because I was trying to use RET to
enter a new line in the middle of a longish list (like the value of
load-path) that I had just dumped into my *scratch* buffer to see what
the heck it was and was pretty confused at what the heck was going on
since the binding didn't show up in the mode documentation (nor, as it
turns out, in the output of describe-bindings) I eventually figured
out from experiments with C-h k more or less what was going on.

Likewise, cool.

My mistake. Thanks for all your hard work.
