Good points.  I agree with all of your views.

The default behaviour should be that a "normal" mouse-1 click follows a link.

The problem is how to not break external packages like preview-latex or AUCTex.

But CVS emacs is still far from being released, and I guess that if we
make a clean interface how to inhibit the mapping for specific links,
the package authors will have plenty of time to adapt their code for
CVS emacs.

Make that:  click mouse-1 outside the link, move into the link with the keyboard

>  - press mouse-1 a little longer

As my patch does, and it works nicely!

and you forgot:

- drag mouse-1 inside the link (you may drag it back to the character
  you clicked on, so you don't really mark a region).

>  - click mouse-1 with a modifier (e.g. C-S-mouse-1)

I don't see a need for this.  Better reserve such bindings for
future enhancements.

BTW, I agree that S-mouse-1 wastes a good mouse binding, as you can
easily get the same function from the menu Options > Set font/fontset.

I wish I could use S-mouse-1 to start marking a rectangle in CUA.
