Everything has his pros and cons. I never used that feature anyway, but 
I think nano's behavior appeals me :) IMO confusion is not the best 
argument, if it's documented (and you get used to it anyway). I'm 
getting used to a lot of small pieces in Geany which were slightly 
confusing when I ran first into them. They aren't a big deal at all.

Best regards.
