Ah -- I use transient-mark-mode, which makes the dynamics of such things
different.  I think with TMM active, it would be useful behavior, but I
can see that it would probably suck if TMM wasn't active...  Would this
make sense as `transient-mark-mode only' behavior?

BTW, I'm pretty sure I've used an emacs-like editor that did this, and
found it quite handy (the command bound to M-y was something like
`replace region' and behaved similarly to Emacs' M-y when repeated),
though I can't confidently remember which one; maybe it was the ATK `ez'
editor, which basically always used behavior similar to

`The suburb is an obsolete and contradictory form of human settlement'
