      I hadn't seen it until I tested with the snapshot, too. Maybe it's a
      recent addition. :-)

      I haven't tried to use modeless selection much, though.

      True, though that is at :help modeless.

      I prefer go+=A which only does its dirty work for the modeless
      selection, not for Visual mode too.

      :help 'go'
