Subject: Re: Bug: Priority Of A Task In Emacs 27.2 Cannot Be Removed With Space Key ("SPC to remove")

Not sure how easy it would be to restore the previous behaviour. I guess
if you restricted numerical priorities to 0 .. 9 it would be reasonably
easy as you only need to check for a single key press. However, once you
go above 9 and have the situation where the value could be more than a
single key press, you have no way to know when input is finished.

It should be noted that the old behaviour using letters for priorities
still works (as does clearing wiht a space). Personally, I've always
been happy with just letters and 3 priorities. I find once you go past
about 3 or 4, priorities don't have a lot of value. YMMV of course.
