OK, how would you execute this command that you see sitting in front of you?

I ended up doing<escape>  x l i s t p<backspace>
-<escape>  /<return>

That's because I am unable to just put the cursor on it and do M-x, as
for some reason execute-extended-command won't prompt me for it even now
these days. I recall the idea was rejected.

The idea of adding a command to pull a string from the original buffer
to the minibuffer was not rejected.  The only problem is that we have
to find a good keybinding.  One proposal was to use `M-.', so when the
cursor is on the string `list-load-path-shadows' you can type

   M-x M-. RET

Hmm, why don't to the same as C-h f does, offer the function as a default? I think that works quite well.
