        I stand corrected.

        FWIW, that doesn’t change a thing to me, – I still find that
        particular feature not helpful, and keep it disabled.  (Along
        with global-eldoc-mode, transient-mark-mode, the binding of
        [home] to beginning-of-line, and some more.)

        For someone knowledgeable to that part of the code, I presume.

        Adding untested features without providing an easy way for the
        user to opt out is not a good idea, either.

PS.  Belated thanks to Dmitry Gutov for dealing with #17008.  Filing a
        bug like that was somewhere near the very bottom of my “to do”
        list for a while.  And now I’m pleasantly surprised to discover
        that the issue was actually fixed over half an year ago.
