I considered that, but rejected it; it's not blindingly obvious how or
when comint gets loaded, and thus unclear how early I'd need to load
my custom file (nor what else I might break by moving its loading
around).  I fear that juggling the timing like that would become an
endless game of whack-a-mole.

Aha, that must be deep "defvar" magic.  I'd never heard of
'standard-value before.

I think I'll stick with reloading the whole library; it's clearer to me.

Thanks.
