IMO the delay is very minute. Not having it is a pain, I tried that  
(don't remember what program, and it might have been on Windows). I  
kept dragging text around when I wanted to make a new selection  
(after selecting one letter too many or too few before). So I for one  
am for the delay! :-).

While I am not exactly opposed to making it a pref item, I can come  
up with a list of things I'd like to see in prefs before this one, if  
keeping it simple is a factor.
