I ask for behavior of comint that is not only compatible with its
versions, but very useful: to be able to move around comint buffer
with regular text movement commands, including search ones, and to
move that way in any place of buffer, whether it is user input or
process output.  By setting `inhibit-field-text-motion' user option
(as suggested by its docstring) or otherwise, but there should be a
way to do that.

If decide to change it this way, please document that, in its
docstring in the first place (never checked for other things to be
changed).  In this case please also document how does comint user have
particular comint buffer ignore comint fields in text movement
commands as described above.
