i expect you should change the complete feel, since this defines how
a face reacts.
for fields it should be: ctx-text/swipe
for info it should be: ctx-text/edit
says info is derived from a field, so a info should have all a
but not tested.
(probe get in get-style 'info 'facets) gives usually the source-code
of a style, 'style the base-style. have not seen both used til now)
