This change has removed a reaonable distinction between deleting a

Yet another bad change.

Actually, C-d runs delete-char (or in 24.0.50 delete-forward-char) and C-w runs kill-region. I thought the difference between delete and kill was that the latter puts the killed section on the kill-ring, no? I would definitely appreciate a distinctive behavior like that.

Btw, in 23.2 (on Windows), how do I delete (not kill) an active region?

C-Space, C-f a couple of times to select word, then neither Backspace, nor Delete actually delete the active region. I can only kill it with C-w.
