C-M-u (in programming modes) doesn't set the mark, and this is (for me at
any rate) correct.  I don't want my mark stack flooded out with
uninteresting places, typically 20 or 10 or fewer lines apart. 

On the other hand, I've often wondered whether C-M-a ought to set the
mark.  I often do a C-u C-<space> first.  Maybe I should try advising
C-M-[ae] to set the mark.

I don't use Outline mode much (in fact only for reading NEWS).  Is C-c
C-u more like C-M-u or more like C-M-a?  Maybe `beginning-of-defun'
should jump to the highest level enclosing heading in outline mode, and
maybe it should set the mark, too.  It would be trivial to code, since
there's a hook already there specially for this purpose
