I proposed making delete-selection-pre-hook understand a function as
one of the legitimate types. If it were a function, it gets called and
its results would be interpreted as type, either: 'yank, 'kill,
'supersede, t, or nil.
That way, electric-pair-mode can override the (put
'self-insert-command 'delete-selection ...) with its own function that
understands the triggering condition. The triggering condition would
be extracted from electric-pair-post-self-insert-function so it could
be used in two places.
P.S. I don't have an bzr checkout of Emacs right now. Would this be
something useful to target against Emacs 24 as a bugfix?
