Yes, matching starts at two characters minimum (configurable
[hardcoded], however).

Well, there are about 65 000 likely single-value episodes
(number of unicode code points). Any system using more than,
say, 100 such episodes seems to me a gross abuse of the
episodes. I wonder whether those in quest of such folly
deserve the end of the road they are heading down ? :-)

Also, the dropdown really should display single-character
episodes, too, when pressing Cursor-Down or typing "*" into
an empty phrasewheel.
