One problem: when I type `M-=', it fails with:

  Debugger entered--Lisp error: (mark-inactive)
    call-interactively(count-words-region nil nil)

That's because I customized `mark-even-if-inactive' to `nil'
(to avoid its dangerous behavior when it's non-nil).

Maybe `count-words-region' should take care of this case?

Better yet to bind `M-=' to a new command with a general name
like suggested `count-stats' that will take care of different
region activation cases and report all possible counts.
