icomplete-vertical-mode not taking effect

Am starting to have enough of free software.  After sending a
bug-report, I got a response that the method of enabling
icomplete-vertical-mode is good as it is, followed by getting the
bug-report closed.

Am beginning to think that the reason is actually malice mixed
with a good dose of stupidity.  Because as long as the
implementation is capable of enabling the mode, things are great.
Very superficial way at dealing with bug-reports.

It could also be that the bug-report subject was not good enough
for Lars to understand my intention.  Could people who agree with
the change help me out on this?

I think that works as designed -- as the doc string says:

"Toggle vertical candidate display in `icomplete-mode' or `fido-mode'."

So the mode can't just switch on icomplete-mode by itself, because it
works two different modes.

The reason was not malice or stupidity, just a preference on the
question of user options/variables vs minor modes.
