No, no.  You need to have an active region, which depends on having
transient-mark-mode on.  The latter got default in emacs 23, but DEL did
not delete the active region.  With the proposed behavior, it will be
deleted.  The proposed behavior is that you get with the current emacs
24 pretest tarball.

Bye,
