I do care much. I use Shift-Insert to paste selection and Control+Insert
to set selection all the time. If the behavior of those keys was

Have you ever considered how much text can fit in eighty columns?  Given that a
signature typically contains up to four lines of text, this space allows you to

opportunity and don't waste your signature on bullshit that nobody cares about.
