The function.

The idea that `oh, in _this_ situation, it works _backwards_,' not because it
actually makes much sense, but (apparently) simply because that particular
case is otherwise a no-op seems like a quick trip to a totally confusing user
interface.  If the conventional two-key idiom is really so inconvenient, why
not bind another key to it (personally I have C-u do that in the minibuffer,
but I can see why most people wouldn't like this)?
