Hi Benny,

from your message I'm not sure whether you consider emacs' current behavior, 
or the one of other text editors to be the anti-feature?

I'm going to assume you mean that you prefer emacs' current behavior: I do not 
propose changing the current default, the patch I sent is merely to quickly 
allow people to see/test the behavior I would like to be able to optionally 
enable. So even if this were to be included in emacs, you wouldn't have to do 
anything to not have it.
