Implementation-wise, I think I would handle an `if`
and a variable. It a very bad idea for usability,
that's all. Just what would you call this thing? No,
no, forgot I asked :-)
Anyway, whatever the name I strongly oppose it.
I can't stop you from adding it, of course.
Eli, although I do feel some itch to reply to your
characterization of my solution as "all-or-nothing"
I will leave the discussion here, since I have nothing
new to add. Contrary to what you might believe from
the number of words I spent on this, I am not sad
or demotivated. I plan on continuing to contribute to
Emacs and some of these things will require (or are
already waiting for <wink>) your feedback, so I suggest
we move on to those.
