Lennart, I'm surprised that you think shift-selection is not
an inferior method of marking a region.  To me this is one
of the main reasons I can't edit text outside of Emacs:
typing arrow keys deactivates the selection, you can't go
to the beginning of the selection without deactivating it,
and many more disadvantages.
