It is misleading when you do not use it, but having the body run minibuffer 
in the body.  If you want to make a function without ever interacting with the 
user (with 
either M-x or whatever), then calling any minibuffer functionality in the body 
is contrary
to what you want to do.  That's all I am saying.
