Quelle horreur !

Farther & farther from Occam - more & more complex.
For what gain?  Don't multiply things unnecessarily.


This _looks_ like a solution that's looking for
a problem to solve.  Evidence to the contrary?

We already have `C-x 4 C-h', which shows you
every `C-x 4' key sequence and its command, with
a link to its doc.  Que demande le peuple ?

Global Bindings Starting With C-x 4:
key             binding
---             -------

C-x 4 C-f       find-file-other-window
C-x 4 C-o       display-buffer
C-x 4 .         xref-find-definitions-other-window
C-x 4 0         kill-buffer-and-window
C-x 4 a         add-change-log-entry-other-window
C-x 4 b         switch-to-buffer-other-window
C-x 4 c         clone-indirect-buffer-other-window
C-x 4 d         dired-other-window
C-x 4 f         find-file-other-window
C-x 4 m         compose-mail-other-window
C-x 4 r         find-file-read-only-other-window

And we already have `C-h k C-x 4 C-f'.  `C-h k'
just _works_ -- for any key sequence.

It ain't broke; please don't fix it.  There are
many other things to work on - real, not imaginary,
