Lots of great discussion on this feature while I was away for a few days!
After reading the comments, it does seem that changing core to get a smarter
M-x isn't the best plan right now.

While some may want a more narrow and efficient M-x, others just don't, for
discovery purposes. Also, it's hard to properly define a "context" for when
commands should appear, since for some, that notion varies.

And, well, Stefan's argument about impurity sold me. I have a feeling he knew
it would, too. :)

I'd still love to see a faster, more apropos M-x develop in ELPA, if anyone is
interested in making that happen.
