That assumes you like using bindings for all the commands; I don't.
Command recall and having completion options serve me very well.  Your
suggestion comes unstuck when I attempt to switch between the window's
keyboard and the MULE keyboard in the middle of the command.  'M-x'
isn't recursive. Still, your suggestion should be useful for grepping
for ASCII stuff.
