As a native English speaker, "your Lisp program may wish telling the

explain why in terms of grammatical rules). Whereas, "your Lisp
program may wish to tell the process" is correct.
That's one argument for this change; another is the statistical one
based on the existing Emacs documentation:
address@hidden:/data/steve/git/emacs> grep -r " wish to " doc/ | wc -l
address@hidden:/data/steve/git/emacs> grep -r " wish [a-z]*ing " doc/
doc/lispref/processes.texi:may wish telling the process the dimensions
Eli, does this persuade you to accept this change too?
