bug#7260: 24.0.50; DEL screwed up

    we make DEL behave differently for one type of region, what's the
    justification for limiting ourselves to DEL?

DEL is so special that we need no "justification" for treating
it specially.  However, that's not what I recommend.  It's not
just DEL, it is also C-d.

    For instance, in other X applications, shift-selecting a region and
    typing a self-inserting character replaces the region.  By this
    reasoning, shouldn't we enable Delete Selection mode style behavior for
    shift-selected regions?

Maybe we should fully enable that behavior after shift-selections
and after mouse-selections.
