Sorry to hear that.  I agree that it is good to keep the traditional
behavior as much as possible, but not at the expense of evolving
positively.

So you want to keep the current behavior of "C-y M-y" for the sake of
"traditional behavior", so that M-y would do one thing when preceded
by C-y, and another one (completely different) when not.  IMO, this
mixing/overloading of functionality in M-y is not clean, and besides,
one of those two tasks would be already implemented in M-p.  I'd like
you to reconsider this, please.

100% agreement on that (I like your "transient version" improvement).
