    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).

Now this is getting interesting - this is something to look into later. It
might be that we can tweak the design so everyone is satisfied. But we
should not discuss this now: it's clear that this is not going to change for
this release.
