    To each his own.  I find Emacs very hard to use without the
    visual feedback of transient-mark-mode.

It's not worth continuing this thread now, but I wonder if it wouldn't be
worthwhile looking into the use patterns sometime later. It's possible that
Richard uses t-m mode differently from Stefan and I. If we looked into this
a little more (later), we might be able to either improve it (for Richard's
use case) or document "best practices" that would mention various use

Conversely, Richard's use of Emacs without t-m mode might teach us how easy
things can be without it - he might be doing something differently.

It's clear that we each feel strongly about this - we just have different
opinions. I'm guessing that might have to do with how we use the feature or
how we do without it.

There are so many different ways to configure and use Emacs that it's hard
to see how something one finds useful (or aggravating) could be aggravating
(or useful) to someone else.
