Can I suggest that a similar change be made for insert-register? At
the moment the prefix argument makes insert-register leave the point
after the inserted text, but you could still acheive the same affect
with very few extra keystrokes by typing 'C-x x' after the insert to
swap the point and mark. Using the prefix to make it insert multiple
copies seems more intuitive and is like vi.
