A hundred years ago, when I was using a 8088 chip and an IBM clone,
*typeover* was set as a default on a client's wordprocessor,(I can't even
remember the name, it was pre-WordPerfect - oh wait, I think it was
MultiMate). I remember it as being only mildly useful and very confusing if
I was ever distracted.
