Re: setting punctuation mode globally does not seem to stick

The default for this is a difficult choice.

I added a special option for w3 a while back so that you can
customize the default punct mode for w3 buffers --- but I  have
never been able to convince myself of a good set of defaults,
which is why I've never hard-coded in the defaults, or created
lots of custom options.For the record     
this is also why command dtk-toggle-punctuation-mode exists --
and in most modes, I bind it to [delete]  since I use [del] to
delete characters backward and c-d to delete char under point.
