Re: Avoiding moving point into minibuffer prompt area

    It is useful to move point into the minibuffer prompt without
    changing default settings.  But since this can be confusing for
    beginners, maybe it should be more difficult to move point into the
    prompt area by default?  For example, to disable moving point into
    the prompt with C-b, but allow C-a at the beginning of the input
    area to move point to the beginning of the prompt.

I don't want to even consider something so complex.

This is the sort of minor issue that can take up lots of everyone's
time, but can't possibly be worth it.  And in the mean time, the tasks
that need to be done for the release are not getting done.

Therefore, I will say right now that I will not consider anything
along these lines.  I ask everyone to drop this thread and not send
any further mail about it.
