I'm not sure this is the most convenient way to submit patches. I'll
just comment on a few of them based on your comments (instead of the
code) for now.

We already have a dialog that warns you if you attempt this. No need to
make it impossible.

Haven't looked at the code but this seems useful.

Does this feature an option that can be toggled in any of the dialogs?

There seems to be a difference of opinion whether we should support
every obscure syntax there is out there. As such I don't mind we support
as many syntaxes as we can, but how do we approach extension conflicts?

Should be togglable. Not everyone likes beeping consoles.

Don't like this. We've fixed the warning for white space lines already.
I like to toggle a lot (especially from inside mcedit).

Not without a selectable option.

Quoting is fine but wildcards make no sense for cd. Where is a cd *
supposed to go? Use auto completion (esc tab) instead.
