That's what the text you quoted above meant to say.  Recall that we
talk about a function called 'windmove-delete-in-direction'.  If
that function doesn't delete the window but aborts a recursive edit
instead then it misses its purpose OT1H and overkills OTOH.

OK.  The doc of 'windmove-wrap-around' should say that somewhere.
