select-active-regions is an insufficient requirement.

there also needs to be a var to prevent it w/o affectig anything else.

it is a cool idea, and it will be great for those who want it.

but i'm not alone in hating when applications running in terminals screw
over the way primary/secondary/clipboard normally work in said terminals.

so kudos, but a var to enable it at all, independent of any need for
select-active-regions to be t, is required.  whether it defaults to t
or to nil is ok either way.  but it is needed.
