No, I'm pointing out that M-< sets the mark, at least in XEmacs, and I
use M-< .... C-u C-SPC a lot.  I use C-s ... C-u C-SPC in the same
way.  I don't think I would like it very much if this activated the
region and put the highlighting in my face.

So maybe C-SPC C-n should leave you with an active region, but C-SPC
C-u 256 C-n should not.
