So why is jed than packed with this patch?

What do you gain by it?

Is this *very* unusual behaviour documented anywhere? 
Are there plans to fix it at some stage?

I know, it is "experimental", but I'd still like to see a prominent

and not directly to John.)

At least for me, it renders jed
unusable, as I rely on instant feedback when working with a mouse.
