Phil obviously did not want to embarrass me in public so he wrote me
an email which pointed me to my simple error: a typo "promt" instead
of "prompt" in the function name.

At this point, I know how to type "prompt" in a proper way.

Phil remarks that this is equivalent to eval() which I can't confirm
with my limited Elisp knowledge.

prompt, prompt, prompt, prompt, prompt, prompt.

Sorry for the fuzz. However, you might be pointed to a clever way
for capture templates.
