After thinking about this, my opinion is that the Emacs command
loop---or rather prepare_to_modify_buffer in insdel.c---should make a
copy of the primary selection before running before-change-functions.
Then, deactivate-mark should check if the resulting string is empty;
and, if so, set the primary to that saved copy.

I haven't looked at your branch; is this the approach you implemented?
