I disagree.  That style of `default' is annoying even on MS systems (which of
course always use the equivalent of `delete-selection-mode').  It's just a
dumb idea.

It might make sense to allow people to _explicitly_ request that style of
default if they use delete-selection-mode, but that's pretty irrelevant to
the question at hand.
