I'd like to apply the following patch to flip the sense of the prefix
argument to interact calls to insert-register. I find the current
default behavior of putting point before the inserted text annoying; I
want it after more often and don't want to add C-u to an already long
key sequence.

Of course, this is an incompatible change to a very old interface, but
the breakage should be limited to muscle memory and recorded macros.
