I see, so I guess nothing was broken in the traditional sense. But since
the current documentation or lack thereof might leave people expecting
more, namely, full buffer refilling, they're liable to waste time
fiddling with erc-fill, wondering why it doesn't work. And you suggest
we address this by making things plainer somewhere, perhaps in a doc
string or two.

So is this (and the full dynamic/adaptive feature) something you might
be willing to take on personally, Bost? If not, someone may get around
to it, but if that someone is me, it'll likely be a while (because I've
got lots of other stuff I'm trying to improve on ATM, not least my
understanding of Emacs).

Thanks for the head's up. That whole automated repro thing was just a
half-baked sketch anyway, but I may try to make it less garbage-like at
some point.
