Agreed. Some days ago, I've tried to implement such an approach in the
feature/tramp-thread-safe branch. This failed miserably, due to my lack
of understanding how echo area, minibuffer and keyboard events are
handled in Emacs. Some help would be appreciated for a proof of concept.

(Maybe it is too early to ask for, since we are still collecting ideas)

Best regards, Michael.
