No, I was not. I was pointing out a design flaw, and then on a sidetrack
which you view as the main point, I asked for an application where ctrl+a
didn't mean "select all", and because I expected selfrighteous people to
use that against me, I clearly said that it was just out of curiosity.

Which again is totally besides the point.

"Ein mit ^A markierter Textblock darf sicherheitshalber nicht
ueberschrieben werden" (statusline from Papyrus in your experiment). Yes,
that IS a workaround, and one that really proves there IS an ergonomical
mistake. Which is all I wanted to point out.

Yes I have, but I was illustrating.. oh nevermind I'm not going to repeat
everything just because of your selective blindness. If you must really
miss the point, then you might as well just enjoy it.
