Right (sorry for not providing a more precise reference).
Reiner> Hm, (setq dontinsert) is the same as (setq dontinsert nil) in

Hmm. I didn't try to verify correctness, so I can't comment on what the
right value should be.

Okay. I don't have time to pursue this right now, but I've added a note
to myself about it. Or maybe Aidan will get to it first.

Yes, I'm planning to look into that when I do update to 5.10.10. (My
goal for all the packages I maintain is zero local patches.)

I've seen discussion of it, but I'll have to let Stephen explain what
the current status is.

Okay. If for some reason I need to sync with a non-release snapshot,
I'll mail ding to work out getting it tagged appropriately.
