In general this is a welcome change and I will no longer need the
following in .emacs: (delete-selection-mode 1)

However, I'm not certain from a functional point of view how
delete-selection-mode differs from the proposed change (will it also
include transient mark mode?). 

Furthermore, I would like it to work well with completion.el. (as per
http://www.emacswiki.org/emacs/delsel.el )

Cheers,
Jonathan
