And if you set emacs to use a minibuffer-only frame?

     emacs -Q --eval "(setq default-frame-alist '((minibuffer . nil)))"

That setting is at the bottom of the file Martin attached.

I finally understood what I was doing wrong: I tried to visit the file and 'M-x eval-buffer' from an existing graphical frame. That got me the error.

If I load it from init.el, the result is fairly functional (though with a number of glitches), and it really does look like an improvement over the current situation. Even if the main benefit is simply locality: it displays the "minibuffer" at the bottom of the current window, not frame.
