Re: Marking with the mouse

    Someone in gnu.emacs.help recently complained about the weird behavior of
    the highlighting when you drag the mouse while pressing mouse-1:
    the selected text is highlighted during the drag but the highlighting
    disappears immediately after that.  I was thinking that maybe it's a good
    idea to use the transient transient-mark-mode in this case, so that marking
    with the mouse always behaves like transient-mark-mode.

That is an interesting idea.  Could you install it with a variable to
control it, so that people could try it out, and we could decide later
on whether to make this change the default?
