    Apparently I still haven't made myself clear: Icicles replaces no commands.
    It simply _rebinds_ some keys (and only if a user asks it to). This is about
    command remapping, which is about key bindings.

I've understood that ever since it was first mentioned.  It just
doesn't change as much as you think.

Command remapping is a way of replacing a command.  This method is
much cleaner than redefining the function, but still worth avoiding
when possible.  I think there is no need to replace these commands at
all, and I want to avoid it.

    IIUC, your implementation limits a multi-command to using completion in the
    `interactive' spec,

I described a way to specify this using `interactive'.  That does not
mean there are no other interfaces.  It is trivial to have an API for this.
Having it in `interactive' also is an advantage in simplicity.

                        and (so far), it does not let you provide specific
    functions for the 4 possible multi-command actions.

Later in the message.
