I really need feedback for this, even if the feedback is that this is
specific to MS-Windows and should therefore be fixed by Windows-specific

(FWIW, I think the problem is common to Windows and X alike.)

It is the same in X and NS, i.e. extending with mouse-3 does not put the
region in the kill ring when mouse-drag-copy-region is t.

Perhaps making mouse-save-then-kill respect mouse-drag-copy-region would be best.

Various people may or may not recall that I did originally propose a separate (and horribly named) customisation "mouse-save-then-kill-copy-region" [1] for this reason*.

I can't now really imagine a situation where you'd want mouse-drag-copy-region nil and the "mouse-save-then-kill-copy-region" t or vice versa, you'd always want either both nil or both t**.

(* I also munged in a ":double" setting, that made clipboard-interacting operations took one more click than usual - i.e. the first click only adjusted primary, but double and triple clicking acted like single and double clicking used to)

(** or with ":double" functionality , either both nil, m-d-c-r nil/m-s-t-k-c-r :double, or both t)
