I accept the good idea. I would move into that soon anyway. This is
yet time of thinkering. It is all based on the concept of jumping to
various tings as it is already implemented in Hyperbole.

I wish to bypass Hyperbole, use things with priority myself, and let
the rest be handled by Hyperbole eventually.

Using M-RET is great thing as it is easily accessible action button as
demonstrated in Hyperbole.
