OK, I sat down and looked at this code, since I'm homebound. I added the
active mark/region features (rl_activate_mark/rl_deactivate_mark/etc.)
and a couple of the smaller pieces (_rl_cr, the so/se sequences). Can you
tell me why you decided to make the region management functions public?
Did you anticipate external application functions wanting to manage the
region?

I haven't touched the face code in display.c. I'd like to find a simpler
way to do it: the patch seems to have a lot of overhead and adds more
complexity than I'd like at a time when I'm trying to make the redisplay
code simpler. I don't know of a better way to do that yet.
