I suspect that Richard heavily uses marks to navigate, whereas I only use
them to select a piece of text.  The fact that both of them use C-SPC is
probably the source of the problem.  I suspect that he'd find
transient-mark-mode much less aggravating if C-SPC didn't activate the mark
(and he'd probably also want to set mark-even-if-inactive to t).
