It didn't work otherwise.  I don't know what the pattern match was doing
that would cause it to go down the wrong way.

That's correct about self-insert, but if we don't have the loop, I'm not
sure we've done enough analysis to decide between executing a command
and putting stuff in the buffer.  But feel free to experiment as you
know the sort of things that should work.

I should say I don't really have any interest in this beyond getting it
basically working as a proof of concept --- if you want to tweak it
further, go ahead.  An elegant fix to the internals of the line editor
can wait.
