Fulfilled in git, commit bc22b3c8, by wiping the offered answer when it equals the current filename when Append/Prepend are toggled.

When saving a named buffer through ^O and toggling M-A or M-P, the name of the current buffer stays as the prefilled answer on the prompt bar.  But this is silly: most likely the user wants to append or prepend the current file/buffer to some other file, not to the file itself.  (If they really want to do the latter, they will have to make a little effort by specifying its name themselves -- they do not need to remember the name: normally it is written in the title bar.)

Expected behaior: whenever M-A or M-P is toggled on, and the current answer is equal to the name of the current buffer, the answer should be wiped, to spare the user having to type <Bsp> several times (when they are not familiar with ^K).
