    Currently M-C-SPC starts marking a new region even in the region is
    active.  But to start a new region it is possible to deactivate the
    current region with C-g, and start a new marking.  So it's not
    a problem.  There was no release where consequent marking commands
    extend the region.  So it's not too late to change this behavior.

    This change also allows to do such useful things as switching the
    direction of the region marking, i.e. M-C-SPC C-x C-x M-C-SPC M-C-SPC
    and it continues extending the region in the reverse direction towards
    the beginning of the buffer.  Another C-x C-x M-C-SPC and it continues
    extending the marked region forwards again.

It sounds like a good change.  Stefan, are you convinced?
