That in itself is a good thing, but ISTR that the simple
implementations of this had bad effects in other cases.
To do the job right requires something much more complex
which people usually don't bother trying to do.

If anyone who uses Emacs.app or could try out the elisp I posted could provide specifics on such misbehavior, that would be great. I did improve the implementations in a couple of respects after feedback from the Emacs.app user base, and complaints have died off. ;-)
