Uh, what?  We are not talking about

[You are in recursive minibuffer mode! Press C-g to exit it]

We are talking about

[[M-x]] ...

You already need to have a clue about the concept to interpret that.

Anyway, don't be too sure that everybody with disabled recursive
minibuffer has intentionally done so: most people's dotemacs is pasted
together from multiple sources without a clue.

One should probably place an electronic signature into dotemacs files
and prohibit people from using any code they have not entered all by

But I guess this scheme would not be compatible with GPL3.
