      Nice idea, but it does not work for me. I just tried it on OS X
      (Carbon vim 6.0) and I recall having this problem on Os 8.x. It looks
      as though "t" is already part of the default for 'shm', I already have
      'ch' set to 2, and there is plenty of room for the message. It just
      feels like making me hit the <CR>. :-(

      I get "Hit Enter" on OS X.
