What can anyone tell me about this symbol, whose value is presumably
a function or a list of functions. The only use I see of it in the
Emacs code is as a `delete-selection' TYPE value. For example:
(put 'self-insert-command 'delete-selection
(Similarly, for some other functions besides `self-insert-command'.)
That's fine (hook variables need not be defined or documented), but it
seems like this hook, with such an evocative name ;-), might have some
intended meaning beyond use by `delete-selection-mode'. (Else why
"use-region" instead of something about delete-selection?)
This seems to have been introduced without any real use of it, so far.
So I'm curious what the intention is.
