Should M and N be specified in the call, or should they be global
parameters?  I think the latter is better.

I suggest defining a function 'hint-message' which displays a message
this way, or various appropriate ways to serve this kind of goal.

If we find that there are multiple classes of hint messages that should be
treated somewhat differently, we could make multiple such functions.
That would be better than encouraging each package to come up with its
own M and N.
