Oh yes, now I remember why I never used this feature in my fvwm days:
Emacs has this nifty feature called secondary selection, which by default
is bound to M-mouse thingies. The big idea is marking the area without
moving the cursor, and it's useful, occasionally.

Mine doesn't ;) But I'm opposing this on philosophical grounds. The
application window belongs to the application, we shouldn't mess with it
any more than necessary.
