Then we weren't miscommunicating.  :-)  When you said we might be, I
misread the rest of your message.

I think we have three ideas about how the minibuffer should be handled:

1) It should be as normal a buffer as possible, and we should do minimal
things to distinguish between the prompt and the text (your stance).

2) We should try to make the prompt go away from (some) common commands
where that makes sense (which is what Emacs does now with C-a and the
mark-whole-buffer change).

3) The prompt should be a totally separate thing, not affected by any
commands whatsoever (the suggestion made yesterday).

2), of course, means endless haggling of "what makes sense".  I think
mark-whole-buffer makes sense, but perhaps not?
