This may be a situation where it's not possible to get consensus.  We
have I think three different approaches (Oliver's, Carsten's, yours)
none of the three agrees with either of the others, and we haven't
tried conducting any sort of poll.

I'm of two minds here.  One, there is a relationship between paste and
the region -- if the region is active, the paste replaces it.  However,
if there is no active region, the paste does not make it active (even
though it sets MARK/CURSOR to the opposite ends and e.g. kill-region
will kill the pasted text).  So two, making the paste look the same as
an active region may be misleading ... or, maybe it's OK because it's
almost the same thing.

I guess I agree with Oliver about the newline stripping.
