This was intended for a gradual transition from the old word-search binding
to the normal kill-region binding (declaring it obsolete in the next release
and rebinding it in another release).

We could display this warning only when there is no mark in the minibuffer
and point is at the beginning, and calling kill-region otherwise.
Or we could abandon this half-assed solution altogether and bind C-w
to the standard kill-region binding now.
