A very simple alternative for implementing this (without adding a new
option) is to allow negative numbers for suggest-key-bindings. If the
numbers are negative that would then mean that the message would be
stored in *Messages*.

Implementing it this way would be 2 or 3 lines of C code and a new
sentence in the doc string.
