The suggestion in README.md to enable recursive minibuffers (via (setq enable-recursive-minibuffers t) led me to think that commands like M-x should be usable from within the swiper minibuffer.
However, I saw something I didn't expect when I tried this.
I engaged swiper (C-s), and navigated to a completion.
From within that swiper minibuffer, I typed M-x (bound to counsel-M-x) to call ivy-alt-done (I'd forgotten the hotkey)
The entire contents of the buffer that I was on before I started swiper (that is, the buffer I was searching in with swiper) were replaced with the text "ivy-alt-done".
Instead, what I wanted was for ivy-alt-done to be called in the swiper minibuffer I left.
This is reproducible with a minimal setup (emacs -Q, etc.).
This seems like exactly the sort of use case that recursive minibuffers would help with. I see that some commands play with enable-recursive-minibuffers but counsel-M-x isn't one of them. Is that an easy fix?
