I suggest an interaction hint improvement for the Emacs developers
that I believe would be very clever for all Emacs users from beginners
to experts:

Why not to make emacs, I guess in minibuffer, after a short delay,
*hint* the continuation of *all* multi-level keyboard shortcuts/

This delay would of course be configurable defaulting to I guess one
second (that is what C-h uses).

This would make Emacs much more *exploreable* and thereby more
attractive for new users.

An example of this kind of hinting is already available in the help
(prefix key C-h) so I guess it should not be too difficult to
implement this generalization.

Does something like this already exists in Icicles perhaps, Drew

Thanks in advance,
