Oh, nice.  I guess whenever we're displaying things from an async
context, we should be using minibuffer-message?

Then I'm all for your suggestion to rewrite y-or-n-p with
read-from-minibuffer...  but without a history.  (And yes-or-no-p too,
somehow, I guess.)  (Or fix both of those functions to work the same
with respect to minibuffer-message.)
