Yeah, that makes sense.  There's a small bugfix that I'll try to send
later today, and I'll check the doc fixes to see if they're relevant.

I think a feature branch could be nice.  The changes are conceptually
orthogonal in the sense that each enhancement can be useful by itself,
but the code changes are not separated as some of them touch the same
areas of minibuffer.el.

I can pick the relevant changes and create a tidy feature branch with
just these new minibuffer commands added on top of master, if that helps.
