But those already have meaning in navigating history. So
before a potentially compatibility-breaking decision is made,
we must understand exactly what we're gaining and losing.

Contrary to what I believed C-n and C-p should be fine,
though.  I personally want to never lose C-s/C-r because
that's what Ido uses.

In fact, I hope this discussion (of which I've missed a
few mails) is now concentrating on adding this to Icomplete,
not Fido specifically.
