Will fix that.

Good idea.  I'll do that.

I have added code which disables these modes when cua-mode is enabled
and reenable them if cua-mode is disabled.

This is true -- but there are other packages in emacs which overlap
in functionality, so I guess it is ok to have these as separate

But it should not be possible to enable them if cua-mode is enabled.

One way to accomplish thati is directly in the delete-selection-mode
and pc-selection-mode functions, but I don't know if that is really
possible with define-minor-mode.

Another possibility would be to defadvice those functions in cua-base,
but can you defadvice a function which isn't (auto)loaded yet [I
definitely don't want to load it just to defadvice it].

Any suggestions?
