I agree that such an interface would be useful for Emacs.  I think it
already has been reinvented multiple times in Emacs itself.  I invented
it myself.

Some minor thoughts: The input buffer should be more controllable: modes
and keymap shouldn't be fixed.  Also, it should be possible to prefill
the buffer with a string describing what the user is expected to do, and
which is ignored after the user has finished.


Michael.
