Matthew> yank-nth-arg (M-C-y)

$ echo a b c d
a b c d
[in the following example, I do not hit RET anywhere]
Now type "echo" and hit M-C-y M-C-y M-C-y M-C-y
$ echo aaaa 
what I want is
$ echo
[I hit [some_key_sequence] and I see
$ echo d
[I hit [some_key_sequence] again and I see
$ echo c
[I hit [some_key_sequence] again and I see
$ echo b
[I hit [some_key_sequence] again and I see
$ echo a
[I hit [some_key_sequence] again and I see
$ echo echo

I don't want to be forced give arguments [as required for M-C-y] to
get what I want.  I want the action of M-. , except that I want it in
the leftward direction, instead of the upward direction, as it cruises
thru the history list.

[some_key_sequence should be better than the thumb twister M-C-y too.]
