<pre wrap="">No I don't think so. IMHO the default functionality should work analog
to the normal cut command.
<pre wrap="">Well it would, but you'd move the cursor with the normal cut command,
and in that case the text buffer would be cleared in all situations :)
What if you cut something then decide you just want to delete it and
cut lines starting at the cursor? Then you'd be confused when pasting
with extra lines at the start that you might not see (maybe you're
cutting more than a page of lines).
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.<br>
