I think it might have been the built-in ido mode, if you're using one at
all--IIRC you weren't using one last we discussed our Emacs configs and preferences.

That's totally reasonable, and in fact in upstream Elpy issue tracker
there was a discussion about whether the future of Elpy would be an
extension to lsp-mode.

It's ok, I learned a lot on the way, and never would have discovered
find-file-in-project and Ivy/Counsel/Swiper.  I hear you!  So much work
is keeping up with all the breaking changes...  Elpy had a bit of a
crisis when Jorgen Schaefer retired, Gaby Launay carried the banner, but
then RSI got him :-(  If you want to send a message of
support/solidarity, his email's in the control file.

Quite possibly yes.  That said, I *really* don't like the feeling of
being beaten, so I took a crack at it today, and I think the cause of
the total dysfunction of rg-el might actually be a bug in our ripgrep.
I'll send a follow up email momentarily that CCs the maintainers.

You're very welcome :-)

Je suis d'accord, la démocratie directe est l'idéal, mais pendant mes
cours de science politique j'ai appris comment il y a un scaling problem
insurmontable quand le cadre dépasse une certaine population :-/
