Regarding patches, I feel I am too inexperienced at this moment to
efficiently write good patches.  It is possible, though, that I am just
unduly insecure.  Perfectionism and low self esteem combine to generate
a lot of insecurity.

Yes, this is the behavior I get too.  But see what the manual says:

    If there is an active region when calling this, selected text is
    changed into *an item*.
[ my emphasis ]

It says `C-c -' changes the (potentially multiple) lines into *an item*
(singular).  With the prefix argument it says:

    With a prefix argument, all lines are converted to *list items*.
[ my emphasis ]

It says `C-c -' changes the (potentially multiple) lines into *list
items* (plural).
