The implementation of the stuff in `M-x' is trivial: Don't complete to
commands that are/aren't marked in a certain way.  What will take real
work is instrumenting the commands.  (One way or the other.)

Making changes and then seeing improvements in Emacs immediately would
be a great motivating factor, I think, to get people to do this stuff.
