Isn't this exactly the same thing I currently do with cmd-a, cmd-x, type
answer, hit return, cmd-v, and then continue typing the previous thing?
I'm going to assume that the terms "push" and "pop" are derived from the act
of adding something to or retrieving from a stack. I dunno, maybe I'm just
set in my ways but this doesn't seem all that useful based on just this.
I'm not sure why I'd need a stack of input pre-queued for later recall.
Especially if it truly is a stack and you can only access the most recently
added (top) element. It just sounds like a very limited multi-item
clipboard. Maybe I'm missing something?
P.S. I'm sorry if I sound overly cynical about a feature that was so
