    I don't agree.  There are many other commands which are specific for
    the region, rectangle, and global mark cases, and handling those in
    separate functions is a lot clearer (to me).

You said that the function of these maps is to remap
`kill-ring-save'.  I based my comment on what you said.
Rather than remap `kill-ring-save', which is the usual
key binding of M-w, I think it would be cleaner to bind M-w
to one new command.

What do these "many other commands" have to do with remapping
`kill-ring-save'?  I don't see the connection.  Do these three maps do
something else besides remap `kill-ring-save'?  If so, would you
please say precisely what other jobs they do?
