Well, FWIW, this curmudgeon *hates* pending-delete mode.
Do you map a key for delete-region, then, or maybe use kill-region
(mapped to C-w here) instead?
Or perhaps I'm doing something wrong; I typically use a marked region
to replace text, either deleting it or typing over it. With Pending
Delete disabled, that region is ignored by C-d, which I use to remove
almost anything from a buffer.
Is there a better way? I do know about kill-word, kill-sentence, and
friends, but they're more context-dependent than C-d.
