Sure fido-mode binds commands that it needs to bind for it
to be useful, the choice for M-j was the closest thing available at
the time. If you've made a better one since, that's great.

Let's first _not_ change the current fido-mode UI ok? At least
for now.  Later (even before Emacs 27) could be fine.

I'm just looking for the patch to minibuffer.el that I remember you
saying you were preparing. (I'm sorry, but I don't have time right now to
find it in this very poor Gmail UI).  I've pulled from your branch in Git
and yours patches look fine, but really I don't understand the minibuffer
one anymore at this kind of distance.  But it it's the one we talked about
when I did understand it, I'm all for it.

Don't know which is which, but classifiers will classify :-)

Yes, thanks!
