I vote for the original code, outside the selection, to be left 
untouched by default. This convey simplicity and straightforwardness, 
which I believe is in the spirit of Smalltalk.

Now my inner hacker also says that if something more than the result 
printString is to be inserted, then it would be nice to have that highly 
customizable so that it can fit several workflows, and maybe be set 
differently for different tools... But for now a preference is fine AFAIAC.
