Dear GNU Emacs,

Why did you remove count-lines-region and make the only option count-lines-page? How is counting Control-L-delimited “pages” useful as a default behavior?

Worse, the only way to get line-count from a region is now count-words-region, but that takes extra keystrokes to avoid invoking count-words. (yes, I know there are keyboard shortcuts; there are lots of keyboard shortcuts. I’ve never trusted them to be stable)

So, more workarounds in my .emacs file to turn Emacs back into a text editor. 😡 💩 🔥
