If you enable cua-mode via the Options menu, notice that the menu item
for transient mark mode becomes inactive, ie.  the user cannot easily
change the setting of transient-mark-mode while cua-mode is

BTW, cua-mode selectively enables and disables t-m-m depending on
its state, e.g. if you mark a rectangle, t-m-m is disabled, since
cua does its own rectangle highlighting.

I think it is safer to restore the value of t-m-m that was active
before cua-mode was enabled.
