Interesting 🙂. If you have red my previous mails to this list you
might have noticed that I am not an elisp guru. Stefan has
outlined two possible ways how this could be implemented in
Elisp, if you follow his advice I am sure you will have a working
solution you can present to us. I don't care how many lines of code
it will take.

You still can my friend, and I encourage you to do and test if the
idea itself is valid. That was the purpose why I wrote patch. I clearly
stated it is just a prototype of an idea in order to test the soundness of
the idea. It takes two minutes to patch 3 files and rebuild Emacs. if you
wish to play with it. It is not like it cost some enormous mount of money

There are many sources in Emacs source code or elsewhere you can look
at if you need learning material.
