    BTW, shouldn't the documentation for the `transient-mark-mode' variable
    mention this special behavior when set to `lambda' (why `lambda', anyway?)?

`lambda' is a symbol that we know exists and has no particular other
meaning.  When we want to add a third state value to some boolean
variable, we often use `lambda'.
