Message-ID: <email@example.com> (raw)
My limited understanding is this:
Without the concept of activeness, you can't tell whether to operate
on a single thing or a region.
Old workarounds were to have -region commands, which polluted the key
space; or C-u, which polluted the prefix space. t-m-m came along and
solved it. Region versions of many emacs commands won't be available
if you don't turn it on.
Carbon emacs, and probably the default emacs, have t-m-m on by default.
Myalgic encephalomyelitis denialists are knowingly causing further
suffering and death by opposing biomedical research on this serious
infectious disease. Do you care about the world?
