Sorry for bringing this up again, but I still don't get why this is a minor mode from a user perspective. Vertical or horizontal doesn't sound like something that should be a (global) mode, but a regular option. Wasn't there a patch or a branch that tried to implement it that way?

That would be the feature/icomplete-vertical branch.

Which we'll certainly need to consider and compare when reviewing this patch.

It was a consequence of the development of that feature branch that the redisplay-adhoc-scroll-in-resize-mini-windows variable was added to Emacs. This variable, which is used by this patch, is the only way to implement the feature correctly, that is, while obeying Emacs' constraints on the miniwindow size (max-mini-window-height, resize-mini-windows, size of the other windows in the frame, and so forth).
