Well, if you just type manually a bunch of file names, how is Emacs to
know they are file names?  You can format it any way you like, it's
just text as far as Emacs is concerned.

The format I show above is produced by "C-x 4 a" and friends, when you
type that command in several buffers one after the other.

How do you expect Emacs to distinguish between a list of files and
arbitrary text, in your scenario?  You only want it to do that
for files, right?
