;;; Commentary:

;; Having loaded this code you can set the region by holding down the
;; shift key and move the cursor to the other end of the region.  The
;; functionallity provided by this code is similar to that provided by
;; the editors of Borland International's compilers for ms-dos.

;; Currently, s-region-move may be bound only to events that are vectors
;; of length one and whose last element is a symbol.  Also, the functions
;; that are given this kind of overlay should be (interactive "p") 
;; functions.

;; If the following keys are not already bound then...
