Thanks, that helped understant what the output variable is supposed to
do, and it does match the docstring (which explains that it's about
the point, not the window).
But what about the input variable?
If I set it to nil, the window still scrolls whenever I hit RET. And
the docstring seems to say it shouldn't:
