Multiple Cursors and the Mouse

On Emacs Rocks!, Magnar Sveen announced that he's added a mouse interface to the excellent multiple-cursors package. Amusingly, the first two replies were

  1. Excellent!!!!
  2. This is the beginning of the end!

I pretty much ignore the mouse when I'm in Emacs so the functionality is not something I'm apt to use. That said, it doesn't bother me that it's there—I firmly believe the Earth will continue to revolve around the Sun—and, according to Sveen, it's something that people have been asking for.

I look on it as Sveen continuing the Emacs tradition of letting you have it your way. If you aren't already using multiple-cursors, stop wasting your time reading blogs and go download it with ELPA. If you haven't already seen it in action, spend 4 minutes to watch this excellent demonstration. You're sure to be impressed.
