I've spoken privately with both Oliver and Carsten and I actually think
there _is_ consensus for both patches that I committed (strip newlines
and enable highlighting).  It's the "strip newlines at accept-line" part
that's not in consensus.

As to interaction with the region: in my workflow, I sometimes do
<set-mark-command>, <typing>, <quote-region>.  During that sequence,
even I happen to do a paste during the <typing> part, I wouldn't want
MARK to move to the start of the paste.  I don't know <paste> should
default to moving MARK.
