Nice.  The invisible text becomes visible again.  But that's the same
with C-k.  I presume it's intended to behave like this.

When hitting C-u -2 S-<backspace>, do people expect to kill the current
line, plus the previous line?  Or do people expect to delete the
previous two lines, excluding the current line?

The first would be similar to C-e C-u -1 C-k.
The second would be similar to C-a C-u -2 C-k.

I tend towards the first behavior.

It's interesting that C-k with a negative arg kills more than a C-k
with a positive arg.  If I'm in the middle of a line and do C-u 1 C-k,
then I'll kill half a line.  But if I do C-u -1 C-k, then I'll kill
one-and-a-half lines!  This is quite unexpected.

C-k is similar to C-@ C-e C-w.
C-u 1 C-k is similar to C-@ C-e C-f C-w.

C-u 0 C-k is similar to C-@ C-a C-w.
By analogy, I'd expect C-u -1 C-k to be similar to C-@ C-a C-b C-w.
But it is like C-@ C-a C-p C-w.

What do people think?
This line is not blank.
