Based on my years of experience with CUA-mode, I fully agree with Alan.
Using symbol property + dedicated pre/post hooks is IMHO superior to
interactive-hat for several reasons (that I gave a long time ago).

But I've given up that battle - as long as CUA-mode seems to keep working
despite the ^ thingy, I'm indifferent to how its done in "standard" emacs.
