I don´t understand this.  I thought requests for input would be queued
in such a way that the users can look at the queue when ever they see
fit, and the information in the queue along with the prompts would make
it obvious to the users what each request is about.

Wouldn't that be much better than having requests for input and the
threads that created them fight over the mini-buffer and interrupt the
user once they can hijack the mini-buffer?
