Actually one of the benefits of your proposal is that it opens up the
possibility of freeing the M-y binding.


Why "free" the M-y binding if it means jailing M-n and M-p?

M-n and M-p would not be jailed at all, as I've tried to explain to
you several times.  They would remain unbound, as now.  The only
exception would be after typing C-y...


I understand that.

So what we have today is: "M-y is free unless preceded by C-y." What you propose is: "M-n and M-p are free unless preceded by C-y." However, the way Stefan put it makes it sound like we're freeing up key bindings here. We're not.

  M-y does nothing useful unless preceded by C-y today, so in that sense it's 
already
"free".

If you do "C-h c M-y", you will see that M-y is not currently free.


As I said, M-y does nothing useful unless preceded by C-y. In other words, the command is useless unless you do C-y first. This is why I propose that the behavior of M-y is changed so that unless it is preceded by C-y, it enters a new mode which browses the kill-ring with M-n and M-p.
