On the other hand, selection with shift+arrows seems to me like the crappy
stuff I used to do before entering the glory of Emacs. I would go to admit
it's a small plus to be able to *also* do it like that, but I think setting
the mark, as an anchor, and extend as you move with any other movement
command (and that includes, e.g., i-search), is vastly superior.
We'll have to agree to disagree. I have almost no use for invisible
regions that extend with movement commands.

Except for the default on the visible part, there's actually little
difference between the two methods.  i-search seems to work in cua-mode,
as well.  The only difference is, really, that you either hold shift all
the way through, or hit a key once.  I feel the second method is more
comfortable for a touch-typist, but I don't think CUA users are missing
anything here.


Both methods are available when you use cua-mode.
