Like how M-x icomplete-mode works, what if the Emacs user does the
following to find the right channel for reporting a bug to?

1. <S-return>
   Summons the neural inference engine's interactive prompt.
   Gotcha, org-mode uses <S-return> for something else.

2. type: bug
   All the possible channels are displayed for reporting a bug to.
   For example, like how M-x occur shows a listing to pick from.


ps. I wasn't able to reply to EB's off-list email, the data session is
    rejected.  I don't know why.  Maybe operators are on holidays.
