   That's what the "sorting and duplicate-elimination for dir" code
   I installed a few months back does.

I am starting to lean toward implementing Kay's and Richard's
suggestion.  I have not found any single example defeating it.

Even if something would go wrong, the confusion caused by it (in as
far as RETURN is concerned) would be less than the confusion caused by
the present Emacs behavior.  We are not exactly talking about deleting
directories or such.

Eli is opposed to it, but he seems to have misunderstood the proposal.

The fundamental question is, how likely are we to see something like:

* Menu:

* Interactive Customization::
* Permanent Customization::
* Hooks::
* Styles::
* Advanced Customizations::
   ---------- Footnotes ----------
   (1) Available in Emacs 20 and later, and XEmacs 19.15 and later.
   (2) Obviously, you use the key binding interactively, and the
function call programmatically!

Not an actual example, but an example I gave before with some newlines
removed.  Everything depends on the likelihood of such examples
occurring on practice.  Especially the missing newline before the
"Footnotes" line (the only problem) looks ugly to me.  But, are there
any hard stylistic guidelines against writing in such a
blank-line-less style?

I have not really made up my mind one way or the other.  Everything
depends on the above questions.
